Sam Williams of Raleigh, North Carolina, turned a shattered life of drug and alcohol abuse around and now provides counseling to others. "I try to be that person who is not going to run away" from someone with problems, he says.

    I remember my uncle as a large but quiet presence. It wasn't until I was much older that I realized how much of a impact he made on his community. I couldn't be prouder to be his nephew; continuing the legacy of nonprofit work as he would want all of us to do.
