Where Are They Now?   Kiwan Jones, Optimist Alumni

                                          Kiwan was admitted to Optimist Youth Homes and Family            
                                          Services in 2013. He struggled with following directions 
                                          from his mother, was charged with burglary and sent to   
                                          Optimist.  Here is Kiwan’s story in his own words:

                                          “At first, it was difficult to be at Optimist. I had to learn how 
                                           to communicate with people I didn’t know and didn’t want 
                                           to be around. I had always dealt with frustration by leaving        
and finding a place of peace by myself away from people. Coming to Optimist was
not that bad, but I found the groups annoying. I had a cool therapist, Nenette, and the
staff was nice as well. They helped me a lot.
                                                                                                  read more
