After being drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round of the 1997 NFL Draft, Warrick Dunn established the Warrick Dunn Family Foundation and the “Homes for the Holidays” program in Tampa, Fla. The program honors his mother – who was shot to death in 1993 – and her dream of home ownership for other single parents. In 1998, the “Homes for the Holidays” program was introduced to Warrick’s hometown of Baton Rouge, La. and in Atlanta, Ga. in 2002 during his first year with the Atlanta Falcons. The “Homes for the Holidays” program currently exists in Atlanta, Tampa, Baton Rouge and Tallahassee, Fla. in 2007. As of December 2007, the program has assisted 74 single parents and 192 dependents to achieve first-time homeownership.
