Pumpkin patch tickets for Arek to spend time with her sisters

Posted Sep 20, 2023
Arek is in her last year of high school and loves spending time with her two sisters. She would like to go with her sisters to Vala's Pumpkin Patch this Halloween season. This will allow her to take her sisters for a fun day! This will be such a fun-filled day of memory-making!

Arek is 17 years old and lives in NE

Arek is a bright and fun young woman. She has been in foster care since 2018 and currently has no contact with her family. Arek is Sudanese, and it is very important to her to be placed with a Sudanese family to stay connected to her culture. Arek excels at school and finished last school year with a 3.8 GPA. She also holds a steady job at a nearby gas station, and they always have great things to say about her. Arek has suffered a lot of trauma in her life and is working hard with a mentor and her therapist to ensure her mental health needs are met so she can succeed as she moves into independent living in the next couple of years.
