Foster Care Month: On the Right Track, Striving for Greatness

Anthony of FHSAnthony, 19, is a charming, motivated, ambitious young college student. But his earlier years were challenging. He came to JCCA’s Pleasantville Short Term Assessment and Rapid Treatment program when he was 15. Although very bright, he had problems at home and didn’t do well with authority figures, especially his mom. “I was smart and got good grades, but I was angry, too, and had trouble listening. At Pleasantville, the staff, especially Mr. Harrigan, taught me how to talk about my problems and how to express myself. I learned coping skills and strategies for dealing better with people.” Anthony spent the next two years at Hillcrest, a JCCA group home. “The staff was great. I knew everybody was totally there for me and they really helped me thrive. They kept me focused and pointed me in the right direction.” Learn what the future held for Anthony by reading the rest of his story here.
