Luncheon Speaker Steve Ford, son of President Gerald R. Ford and Betty Ford
Ford has successfully negotiated the bumpy road from the White House to a successful 20-year career as an actor in Hollywood. A teenager when his father assumed the reins of the presidency from Richard Nixon, Ford left the White House at age 18 to pursue his dream of being a cowboy on cattle ranches out West, followed closely by his ten secret service agents. He later went on to a successful acting career, appearing in over 30 movies. One of Ford's most rewarding roles has been that of student motivational speaker. Taking time off from his Hollywood career, he began traveling across the country to urge students to empower themselves against harmful influences. He walks students through the early habits he formed during his middle school, high school, and college years that led to his alcohol addiction and he shares tools and actionable tasks that led him to regain a life of personal integrity.
The threat of rain was in the air, but nothing could keep our volunteers from showing how much they CARE!!
We have some of the best volunteers ever! Thursday Nexus hosted 40 employees from PepsiCo for their annual United Way Day of Caring. This is the 4th year they have invited Nexus to participate and we couldn’t be happier to be included. Volunteers spent the day building fences, organizing storage space and serve lunch to our clients and staff. It was heartwarming to see them put their all into each project and exemplify what it truly means “to give back to the community.” Nexus loves PepsiCo!

Teen girls (ages 13-17) who are in need of addiction treatment can be served right now at Nexus. Beds are available. We have two high school classrooms on campus and DISD teachers standing by to ensure the girls stay on track at school while in treatment.
