A new bike for Joel who has never had one of his own

Posted Nov 19, 2018
Joel is asking to be able to pick out a bike this Christmas. This is the first time he has the opportunity to feel like a "normal" kid, he has never had a bike of his own, always borrowing from other kids he has lived with. He has been working hard to be able to see his friends out in the community, something he has never been able to do before. He would like a bike so he can get back and forth to the local basketball court, a friends house and the store. He is showing more and more every day that he is able to be responsible.

Joel is 16 years old and lives in Willingboro, NJ

Joel is a well mannered young man. He is adjusting very well and seems to be very happy. Prior to coming to our program, it was difficult to get him motivated to complete most tasks, including showering, going to school and doctor's appointments. Since being in our program, Joel hasn't had to be told more than once to complete any task asked of him. Joel loves to play video games, play basketball and spend time with his friends. He hopes to graduate high school and go on to college, but is not yet sure what he would like to do.
