A new laptop for Jeromy so he can complete his degree

Posted Oct 11, 2018
Jeromy is determined to finish his degree. Like all students in today's world, technology is a critical part of that goal. Jeromy had been using a second-hand laptop given to him by a foster parent. The laptop no longer holds a charge and has become very unreliable. Jeromy needs a new laptop that he can use in class and to complete his assignments.

Jeromy is 26 years old and lives in Port St. Lucie, FL

Jeromy is a young adult with big plans. He entered foster care when he was five years old and spent the rest of his childhood in the system. With great perseverance and dedication, he graduated high school and is now pursuing a degree in criminal justice at Indian River State College. He wants to be a lawyer to help children in foster care. He also wants to run for local city council, and, loves spending his free time speaking to community groups on behalf of Communities Connected for Kids, the child-welfare agency that handles foster care in Jeromy's community.

I just told Jeromy the good news, and he immediately responded with this text: "Oh wow, really? Thank you so much. Thank you so much all praises to the man upstairs." He has been texting me weekly for updates, and at one point said, "There are a lot of nice people out there, hopefully I get a donor." I can't tell you how much this means to Jeromy. It also means a lot to us at CCKids. And for me, this just turned what was shaping up to be a bad day at work an inspirational one. Thank you.

Dear Miss Elena, I want to thank you so much for choosing me. I reach out to “Connected For Kids” for a lot of reasons and you fulfilled one of the reasons. I really need a computer for school at Irsc ( Indian River State College ) I’m narrowing down to almost finishing with my AA degree in criminal justice so this huge step requires a lot of written papers that I can’t simple do without a computer. And thank you so much from the inner inside of my heart. I will cherish this contribution and pay it forward through my success ! Jeromy
