Thomas Matthews is a sixty-year-old businessman who devised nonprofit programs in over fifteen major cities during his life. After setting up the foundation for successful nonprofit entities outside of Tulsa, Thomas chooses to relocate to the outskirts of Chicago’s South Side because of a family tragedy that leaves his daughter and two grandchildren alone. Once in Chicago, Thomas continues to seek out the weakest links in the community as he has done in other areas. But Chicago proves to be his toughest challenge yet. Would a foiled kidnapping, and a selfless act by a homeless man, make his case? It is up to Thomas, the Nonprofit Prophet, to prove that one good deed means more than a check in the bank.
