Isaiah's Story

December 3, 2013

Isaiah, age 1, and a current Upward Bound House resident

It is especially difficult to celebrate life's most festive occasions without a place to call home. This year, Isaiah marked a milestone while living at Upward Bound House: he had his first birthday on July 11, just a few short months after he and his mother moved into Family Place. Isaiah's mother is attending school and pursuing a future in nursing; Isaiah loves the color blue and his favorite animal is a "teddy bear."

During this time of rebuilding and stabilizing, Upward Bound House has provided a safe, nurturing environment for this young family. Where would Isaiah and his mother have been for his first birthday, without Upward Bound House? Where would they have been, if someone like you had not shown their support and compassion?
