Henry’s Story

Henry was placed in foster care due to neglect. Subsequently, his parents’ legal rights were terminated. Henry was constantly in trouble at school and was almost expelled because he sought out negative attention so kids would like him. Bouncing from home to home, he was not anywhere long enough to learn social skills and ways to get positive attention. Henry was assigned a Volunteer Education Advocate who represented him in the expulsion proceeding. Subsequently, he was not expelled. Henry is now doing well in school, participating in extra-curricular activities and making friends for the first time.
