After serving time in prison, Sheldon Smith became a father at age 21. He made a commitment to stay involved in his daughter’s life and wanted to help other young fathers in his troubled Chicago community do the same. Since 2010, his program, the Dovetail Project, has helped nearly 200 young dads build stronger families by giving them the skills to be positive role models and responsible parents.
