Our Donors Gave Tim a Chance to Shine
Tim is no longer that wounded child standing alone on the playground. He plays with friends and participates in a local soccer team. He’s able to talk to his therapist about what has happened to him. He uses his words to express his frustration instead of his fists.
His family is committed to his success and is confident in their ability to support him. Elk Hill has been working to shift our services upstream so we can help vulnerable children, like Tim, at a young age.
This early intervention strategy diverts children from the path so many of our teenage clients have traveled: school suspensions, alternative school placements, hospitalizations, multiple foster home moves, and involvement with the juvenile justice system.
