BENEFITING: ONE SIMPLE WISH
EVENT DATE: Jul 18, 2014
Samantha's CASA would like to give her the birthday present of her dreams which is a trip for two to the Carnivores Tour to see Linkin Park in concert on August 15, 2014. Samantha loves music, writing, and helping others. She has a kind heart and in the years her CASA has known her, she has regularly stated that she wants to help people. Please help us give her a birthday wish she won't forget.
Samantha has been in and out of foster care since she was fifteen years old. She struggled with an independent living plan for her entirety while in the system and will soon turn twenty-one and age out. This past year has been a transformational time for Samantha as she started the year homeless until she got a hotel room and food stamps. In the past few months she has really begun to turn it around and now attends regular therapy and treatment, acquired a safe place to live, and currently works as a dietary aide at a nursing home. She has plans to begin school in the fall and is enrolled in a nursing program.
