Karla’s Story

“I received custody of two emergency foster children two years ago. These children had been taken from their biological homes due to neglect and abuse. I came to the Y to see if the boys could be in a mainstream program. They both suffer from some development issues.

They have been coming to the Y for two years now. They have participated in the Before and After School Program and Summer Day Camp. They have had their challenges, but have remained in the program. After seeing the boys mature at the Y, my husband and I went through the process of finalizing the adoption of these kids.”
