A special dinner for Helen to celebrate graduating

Posted May 21, 2024
Helen is graduating high school! Due to her developmental disability, she was eligible to stay in school until she was 21 with an IEP. She absolutely loved school and never wanted to miss a day. This transition and change will be hard for her. However, she has been sporting her senior gear all year long and appears ready for her next steps in working more and making money. To celebrate this milestone, she would like to go out to eat with her foster family, which consists of her foster mom and two foster brothers. She also wants to bring her best friend, who graduated last year, along to celebrate with her.

Helen is 21 years old and lives in WI

Helen is a wonderful young adult who's still in the foster care system due to developmental delays. Despite that, she's incredibly sweet, friendly, and loves to learn new things. Helen is very close to her foster mom and siblings, and never wants to miss out on any family activities. She's always eager to explore new experiences and has a heart of gold.
