Yuri Williams is the founder of the non-profit A Future Superhero and Friends, whose mission is to provide essential support for the homeless, veterans, sick children, low-income families, and anyone in need of uplifting.
As a juvenile correctional officer for over twenty years, Yuri has restructured his entire work schedule to allow for three 16-hour shifts in a row, so that he can dedicate four days per week to his non-profit.
Then, he dresses up like a superhero and gets to work. He visits skidrow, cancer wards, and families in need to deliver toys, medicine, food, and anything he can to bring light, relief, and a little extra joy into people’s lives.
If you’ve never heard of Yuri Williams and his incredible organization, my hope is that this episode inspires you to dive deeper into the videos, stories, and interviews that have highlighted the life’s work of someone who I believe to be the finest example of selfless service and giving.
