Men We Admire

Steven Dunbar

A few years ago, Stephen Dunbar and his family moved to Atlanta and soon learned about the realities of sex trafficking that plague the city. Upon being introduced to Wellspring Living, they immediately jumped in and got involved in the mission of raising awareness. Since 2018, both Stephen and his wife Jamie have served in various capacities, including on the board of directors. In 2020, with his passion for fitness, Stephen and his son, Gordon, completed their fundraiser, 50 For Freedom – a 50 mile run on the Silver Comet Trail. Their efforts raised over $7,000 for the cause.

Eric Howard

As the General Manager of the Southeast's luxury leader in shopping, Phipps Plaza, Eric Howard is always looking for ways to expand its iconic status. His passion for building on the property’s footprint for more than four decades has led to the redevelopment called One Phipps Plaza.
