St. Joseph's Villa
Fourteen years old, Jalen lives with his mother and recently relocated to a new county. His mother is a single parent and works long hours to provide for her son, meaning he is often home alone before and after school. Jalen is having a difficult time adjusting to his new community, and currently receives Intensive In-Home Services from St. Joseph’s Villa to work on improving mental health, social skills, and relationship building with his family and peers. The library is far away from his home and there is no public transportation in his neighborhood. Assistance with a laptop would help Jalen with school work and in identifying opportunities to engage with his community.
