Good Morning Fam,
Today is a glorious day! I would like to thank Council President Darrell Clarke, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, the Chair of ODAAT's Board Sharif Street, and all of my mentors such as Senator Shirley Kitchen, Senator Vincent Hughes, Congressman Bob Brady, Police Commissioner Richard Ross, Sheriff Jewel Williams, State Rep Leslie Acosta, @UAC President Sharmain Matlock-Turner, the Greater Philadelphia Church of Christ and anyone I may have forgotten, who have shown me the way in serving the sick and suffering people of Philadelphia. But most importantly, I am thanking God and my Father, Rev. Henry Wells for opening the door for all of God's people. #RIPRev !! But we are so glad to see the city commemorating his hard work and dedication by renaming the 2400 block of Lehigh Ave as "Rev Henry T Wells Walk", the center of #Recovery in the City of Brotherly Love #RecoveryMode #ODAAT #WeLoveToServe
Mel Wells and the ODAAT family are excited to announce that we will be hosting weekly Zumba Wednesdays and Yoga Thursdays starting tomorrow, Wednesday February 3rd at 6 PM at the AFCOM center, 2432 West Lehigh Avenue. The first session of each class will even be free! Moving forward, classes will still only cost $3! And what a steal, because you simply can not put a price on being healthy and fit, a vital aspect of RECOVERY! Since this is our first session, please leave a comment if you will be attending so we can get a rough head count and figure out how many yoga matts and other supplies we will need.

ODAAT's President Mel Wells attended Senator Shirley Kitchen, State Representative Jordan Harris and District Attorney Seth Williams' Press Conference today detailing Senate Bill 166. This legislature will allow individuals with certain second- and third-degree misdemeanors and ungraded offenses to petition the court to expunge their criminal records from public view.
Senate Bill 166 will permit some people, who have served their time and remained free of arrest or prosecution for 10 years, a fresh start by limiting access to their past criminal blemishes. This will provide more opportunities to ex-offenders to join the workforce and become productive members of society.
Senate Bill 166 was approved by the Senate on Wednesday, and is now awaiting the governor’s signature to become law.
Thank God for these dedicated servants, who have been fighting to pass this legislature for years in hopes of providing second chances to those who deserve them.
