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.
