Learning to Drive

‘Cameron’, 16 years old, was nominated by his counselor. Cameron has a limited relationship with his biological father and his mother was laid off from her job. He has endured significant grief and loss, mental illness of a family member, and lives in a community filled with violence. Simon has a very strong work ethic. He is resilient, caring and focused on keeping his family together. He dreams of learning how to drive so he can work and save money. He wants to break the cycle of poverty in his family and attend college. With the help of generous donors, we were able to pay for Cameron to take Drivers Education classes and cover the costs for him to obtain his temporary and full drivers license.
