Graduation Highlight: Elizabeth C

It has been an encouragement to see the motivation and perseverance of Elizabeth C. from the Therapeutic Foster Care program. Originally placed in the Family Ties sibling program, Elizabeth has worked tremendously hard to overcome the challenges set before her.

During her placement in foster care, Elizabeth has worked closely with HFY staff, mentor, tutors and foster parents to prepare her for this vital part of her life. She has studied hard, worked on independent living skills to keep her focused on succeeding academically and has set goals to keep her on track.  Additionally, Elizabeth has maintained her grades while actively competing in basketball and track during the winter and spring sport seasons.

Elizabeth graduated and has been accepted to Nassau Community College. She will begin her higher education experience and plans on pursuing a career in criminal justice.

We are proud to highlight Elizabeth’s accomplishments as she continues to triumph in all that she sets her mind to achieve.
