Scott T. Walker Foundation
What happens to a young family when they lose a father, husband, and provider? The spouse and kids are often lost in trying to make sense of that missing piece and what to do to move forward. Struggling single parents face the enormous challenge of providing their families with the essentials and often with very little support. This happened to Dylan Walker and his family when his father, Scott, passed away from cancer. It wasn’t an easy journey but the Walker family made it through. Not only that they created hope for others like them. They started the Scott T. Walker Foundation to honor the legacy of their father and so that single parents families wouldn’t face this challenge alone.

They were left with a widowed mother who at the time was only a part-time employee at Walmart. Through the support of family and friends, the Walker Family could pick themselves up and continue to push forward.
