A New DVD Player for Hezekiah to watch movies to comfort him during the pandemic

Posted May 8, 2020
Hezekiah has been in the system twice now due to substance abuse by his parents. He is now placed in a group home away from his sisters. He normally sees his sisters often but due to COVID-19, he can't visit them right now. He is having a difficult time adjusting to his group home and to the new environment due to the pandemic. One of the things that Hezekiah really enjoys is watching movies. He does have a collection of some of his favorite movies which are Lion King, Trolls and Spiderman but does not have a DVD player for his room. His CASA and therapist feel it would be a good outlet for him and could provide him comfort during a very difficult time.

Hezekiah is 8 years old and lives in San Diego, CA

Hezekiah is a sweet little boy with big brown eyes. He has a kind demeanor despite everything he has been through in his short life. He loves his two younger sisters but unfortunately they are no longer placed together. Which makes every visit with them incredibly special. Hezekiah has a difficult time opening up to people but since his CASA has been assigned to his case he has begun to open up to her and even recently told her he loved her. He has had some behavioral struggles at his group home and at school which is on grounds but has a lot of support from his placement, therapist, social worker and his CASA.
