“If there were no music program, I don’t know how I would have moved forward and developed myself. I really didn’t talk.”
That’s what former Plummer Youth Promise resident LF said to the Boston Globe.
LF came to Plummer Youth Promise when he was 15. He was shy, traumatized and unable to read. With Plummer’s care, treatment and tutoring, he graduated from high school and got a job at a local cycle shop. When he was 20, he moved into a Plummer Youth Promise apartment and we helped him find a full-time job as a mechanic. Today, at age 23, he lives in his own apartment and works full time. He plays music regularly, a passion he developed while living at Plummer. Helping kids in foster care gain skills they will need as adults is part of what we do at Plummer Youth Promise.
