Via his nonprofit, Warrick Dunn Charities, Dunn successfully provided his 139th home to a single mom. Something you probably won’t hear about in the mainstream media, but no worries because notoriety isn’t the motivation for Dunn. He just wants to make a difference in the lives of people that need help.
Dunn became the head of his household at the tender age of 18 years old when his single mother, Betty Smothers, was shot and killed by a thief. Smothers was a police officer, but off duty at the time.
