Reformed dad works to reunite broken familyPosted: Updated:
Kevin Collymore-Bey is leaving his life of crime behind in hopes of reuniting his family.
The 46-year-old was recently incarcerated for assault. While Collymore-Bey was in prison, his family was falling apart. His wife is fighting multiple sclerosis in an assisted living home while two of his four children were sent to live in separate foster homes."It's time for me to step up, be a father," says Collymore-Bey. He has plans to reunite his family.
He credits his shift in focus from crime to family to the Fathers Count program run at the Westchester County Jail by Family Services of Westchester. Collymore-Bey learned about self-esteem, communication and financial literacy.
He's also taking computer classes and hopes to obtain a four-year degree someday and full-time job by the end of the summer. Collymore-Bey hopes to have his family under one roof in a home he has provided very soon.
In the meantime, Collymore-Bey and his kids visit his wife at her assisted living home.
