Jean

Meet 15-year-old Jean! This social 9th grader originally hails from Haiti, but has spent nearly his entire life in Montana.

Among Jean’s favorite activities are Special Olympic sports, bocce ball, soccer and bike riding. But this young man can also be content finding a good book at the library or creating with Legos. 

Routine is extremely important to Jean. It will be vital for his family to understand that daily consistency is key to helping him to function at his best.  When at his public school, Jean does his coursework in a self-contained classroom. This simply means that he is learning in a smaller group of students and receives extra supports from teachers to guide him through the material. 

Due to a road marked by much difficulty, Jean needs to be the only child living in the home and will need to have a parent waiting for him when he arrives home from school each day. When asked what he would like in a family, Jean shared that his family doesn’t need to be of his same race and… oh… he would love a family with a grandma – now there’s a guy who knows what’s important!  

If you might be family to Jean, or another child in the Finding A Way Home program, please click below to complete our Family Application.

And, please keep him in your prayers.

This young man enjoys going to public school where he is in special education classes and has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

Joey

Sixteen-year-old Joey has a great sense of humor! This witty 16 year old, likes joking around with others, is a Lego master and loves participating in Special Olympics sports. Joey enjoys going to school. 

This young man needs a forever home where he can feel secure and know he is loved. Joey has missed out on having trustworthy relationships and the security and love that goes along with that. He needs a forever family who is willing to commit to his emotional and physical needs through consistency and frequent affirmation. 

Joey has some learning and health challenges that will cause him to do best in a structured home, one with clear expectations that are communicated in a way that he can understand. For him to prepare for transitions, he needs to be told well in advance about things happening in the future. 

A best fit for Joey will be a family without children his same age, so that he can receive the affirmation of security and love his heart needs right now. A home with older children may be a very positive fit so he can model their behavior. Joey enjoys spending time with his sisters and grandmother, so it will be important for his family to help him maintain that connection.

Zoe

A self-proclaimed couch potato who likes to hike, 15-year-old Zoe will be the first to tell you that she is a bit of a paradox! She loves animals, especially dogs and horses, and her sense of humor is a defining characteristic. Zoe is a big fan of hip-hop and rap music, although you won’t catch her singing in public!

Almost done with her Freshman year, Zoe struggles with making healthy choices, but works hard and is determined to graduate high school. An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) equips her to achieve that goal. Zoe’s long-term plans include college, with an interest in a career in the medical field.

Zoe describes herself as adventurous and goofy and would love a family that is the same! Coming from a life marked by uncertainty and broken trust, Zoe needs a family who will stick by her side no matter what, offering her a chance to heal. She appreciates clear boundaries, but desires flexibility and consideration of her opinions and feelings. Above all, she needs patient guidance as she learns healthy decision making. Zoe would love a single mom; however, she is open to a two-parent household. If the household has a male parent, she would like time to get to know the family, and for the family to get to know her, to build a relationship before she comes to live with them. Younger kids love Zoe, and she would do well in a family with children under the age of 10.

Izzy enjoys school and does well, especially in reading and math. Some areas she has needed to spend some extra time on is penmanship and social studies. While currently attending a private school, in a public school setting an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) would be an important part of her success in learning.

Because this little lady’s young life has been full of great difficulty, Izzy has very specific needs. Her family must provide the structure and support she needs to feel safe and secure, as well as patience, honesty and love as she works to connect and build trust with adults in her life. Izzy would do best in a two-parent home or with a single mother. Due to past hurts, it would also be best if she is the only child in the home.
