Hopeless to Hopeful
When Carol* brought her nephew into her home, she expected him to behave like her other children, but he is deeply affected by trauma from his past. Carol spent a year learning the right techniques to help him grow and heal, thanks to you

   Carol's baby nephew, Ryan*, was in danger.
   His mother and father were neglectful, and unable to give Ryan the love and attention he needed.
   Carol and her husband were able to obtain guardianship with full parental rights when Ryan was 3 ½ years old. They welcomed him into their family along with their 3 teenage daughters.
   Unfortunately, Ryan has a big trauma history. He suffers from extreme fear, and can be abusive. Before working with Highfields, Ryan would have daily meltdowns, sometimes lasting for hours.  
The Right Way 
Thanks to you, Marshaun is learning how to break his bad habits and get his life back on track.
   Growing up, Marshaun never thought about the consequences of his actions.
   "I started committing crimes when I was 11 years old," said Marshaun. "I wanted money and that was the only way I knew how to get it."
   Because of his poor decisions, he became involved in the court system, and was placed at Highfields' Residential Treatment Program.
   When Marshaun started the program, the staff learned about his behavior, and developed an individualized treatment plan to help steer him on the right path.
