A computer for Jarold who is learning how to be an adult

Posted Mar 4, 2019
Jarold has not had a typical childhood, and was largely denied any type of games or fun. He has a fascination for computers, and he would love to have his own to play games and do research into topics that interest him, like animals and genealogy. Jarold could also use the computer to keep in touch with his sister and to research other family members who could be informal supports for him. As he gains independent living skills, he may be able to use this computer for online classes or seeking other employment. A computer would be a great tool for Jarold as he navigates adulthood and he would be thrilled to get one.

Jarold is 19 years old and lives in Indianapolis, IN

Jarold is an amazing young man who has overcome so much. He is a sweet guy who just got his first job and says he's beginning to feel like he has a "life" again. Jarold has a favorite plaid shirt that he wears several days a week, and a bow tie that he has learned to tie himself (he's so proud!). He enjoys comic books (but not scary ones) and his favorite character is Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes. Jarold loves to talk on the phone and has an older sister he adores. The two of them talk about twice a week. She has a tattoo with his name on it, and he keeps a picture of her shoulder taped up in his room to show anyone who is interested.
