A new pair of sneakers for Derrick who loves to be fashionable

Posted Nov 15, 2018
Derrick is an 8th grade student, and like most 8th grade students, he likes to look his best. Derrick has been working hard in school is doing great both academically and behaviorally. He would love to be able to go to the store to pick out his own sneakers this Holiday!

Derrick is 15 years old and lives in Willingboro, NJ

Derrick is a 14 year-old male who has been residing in our program since February 2018. He has been in foster care since 2014. When he first entered he had severe behavioral problems including poor boundaries, limited social skills, defiant behaviors, lack of respect for authority figures and lack motivation to make progress. Since then, Derrick has made significant improvements. He went from failing all subjects in school to being on honor roll. He participates in therapy and shows motivation to make positive choices in his life. One day he would like to become a judge so that he can help other children in foster care be heard.
