Alley's House presents Creating New Futures Luncheon with Lucille O'Neal
Alley’s House will host its fourth annual Creating New Futures, featuring keynote speaker Lucille O’Neal, author and mother of Shaquille O’Neal. Lucille O’Neal may be the mother of one of greatest athletes of all time, but she is much more than Shaquille O’Neal’s mom. Acquainted early in life with turmoil, O’Neal’s circumstances shaped her perspective, strengthening her resolve to overcome the challenges she would later encounter. She has endured poverty, rejection, abuse, addiction and the illness of a child, yet today her faith and compassion for others is stronger than ever.
She shares her life story candidly, and often humorously, in her book Walk Like You Have Somewhere to Go, as well as in her keynotes. Because she was a teen mother herself at the age of 17, Alley’s House is thrilled to have her share her motivational journey with our supporters and most importantly, our teen moms.
