Challenge grant matches up to $25,000 for independent living program
“If DHS can’t find a foster home, they have to take you to a shelter,” said PAL participant Jonathan. “You feel like no one wants you because people don’t want broken.”
After leaving his last foster home, Jonathan applied for the PAL program to prevent him from shelter hopping. Doing so also helped him move past his heartache and focus on personal and professional goals.
“They have helped me so much,” he said. “There are people here you can talk to.”
Jonathan graduated in May 2017 as an honor student in high school, and now is in his second year at the University of Oklahoma working toward a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.
