Tyree Stays Focused At Highfields
    Tyree is only 13-years-old but he tries his best to act like a grown-up. It's gotten him into trouble in the past; hanging out with the older crowd and not thinking about the consequences. He stayed out late with his friends and used drugs, damaged property, and stole cars.
   "I was spending time with negative people who didn't care about me," said Tyree.
   Tyree was sent to a juvenile detention center, but he didn't put any effort into changing. When his probation officer told him he was transferring to Highfields Residential Program, Tyree was heartbroken to move away from his family.

A New Approach
Beth's adopted son, Aaron, is recovering from a traumatic past. She wants to help him heal, but doesn't always know the best approach. Thanks to you, she found the help she needed from Highfields' Multisystemic Therapy.
 
    Beth* studied child development education and has a successful career helping people with assistance and support programs. She never thought she'd be on the receiving end of services...until she adopted her son, Aaron*.
   Beth adopted Aaron when he was 13-years-old. He experienced trauma in his past that still affects him today. He has anger issues and acts out in ways that Beth does not understand.
   "I couldn't understand why I couldn't help him based on everything I knew," said Beth. "I was frustrated."
