Actor Anson Williams, Doors of Change Founder Jeffrey Sitcov Talk Homelessness, Making a Difference

Actor Anson Williams is lending his support to a worthy cause. Known for his role as Potsie Weber on the iconic television show Happy Days, he is working with the 501(c)(3) organization Doors of Change. Doors of Change’s mission is to get homeless youth off the streets in the United States.

Anson joined Doors of Change Founder and President Jeffrey Sitcov and CYInterview sponsor Rob Gill for a discussion the state of homelessness in America and making a difference.

Jeffrey Sitcov told us how many people Doors of Change has impacted in its in 21 years in operation:

“We’ve helped over 1500 youth get services. But we’re most proud that 2700 of them we’ve gotten off the streets into safe housing.”

On why Anson Williams decided to get involved with Doors of Change, he shared a story from his days working on Happy Days:

“Gary Marshall, years ago during Happy Days, who was really our mentor, early on he sat us down and said, ‘You know, you guys are gonna be famous and people are going to be looking at you, but there’s even better people than you. So, take that platform and shine the light on someone else to help others.’ And we’ve all done that. You know, we take the celebrity platform and we make sure that we can use it for people that are really doing the hard work.”

Rob Gill asked Anson Williams about surviving success and fame after being on Happy Days. The actor responded by saying he credits Paramount Pictures, where Happy Days was shot, as his college for long term success in Hollywood:

“Every day, any time I had time, I was learning. So, I used the experience productively. … From the very beginning, we never got in the way of ourselves. We used it productively. We were grounded. In fact, there are so many wonderful things that happened out of Happy Days because of Gary and our purpose.”
