In 1977, a Buffalo woman named Linda Wilson was killed by her next-door neighbor, a teenager living in foster care. That teen had been passed through 11 different foster homes and experienced multiple types of abuse. Linda’s husband, Bob Wilson, was somehow able to choose empathy and forgiveness, despite his unbearable grief. Forty-one years ago, Bob founded EPIC- Every Person Influences Children, so no family would ever have to experience the immense loss that his family did. He envisioned a world where every child had a strong start and promising future.
