New Hiking Boots for Derricko who loves to sing

Posted May 13, 2019
This summer we will be taking a group of young men on a 3 day camping trip to Red River Gorge. Derricko has earned a spot to attend this trip because of his leadership skills and success in our independent living program. This will be the first tent camping trip for our young people. We will be talking leadership and relationships with them while exploring the Gorge! Each attendee will need hiking boots and we are asking for an REI gift card so we can take them to purchase proper fitting footwear for this trip!

Derricko is 18 years old and lives in Dayton, OH

Derricko is in our independent living program learning the life skills needed to become a successful young adult upon leaving care. He is an amazing communicator and is open to sharing all things happening with his support team. Derricko will grab at any opportunity to help him have a better future. He loves singing and his goal is to own his very own construction company one day.
