CHS is proud to announce the first “graduate” of The Possibilities Project

The Possibilities Are Endless!

Terrance is one of the youth in The Possibilities Project (TPP) who has made amazing progress during his two years in the program! During that time, Terrance has been so successful in accomplishing his life plan goals – including vocational training, life skills and saving money – that he is ready to enjoy the independence he’s worked diligently to achieve! Like all TPP participants, after aging out of foster care Terrance had struggled on his own. He needed life-skills and lacked supports, and struggled to find stable employment and adequate housing. After joining TPP, Terrance has thrived.

In TPP, Terrance received the supports he needed to pursue his dream of a career in law enforcement. With the help of TPP’s Case Manager and Life Coach, Terrance enrolled in professional security classes. He successfully earned multiple certifications and was offered a security guard position. He has maintained steady full-time employment, improved his overall health and established a positive support network of friends, mentors, and co-workers. Terrence is considering joining the Army in the near future with hopes of becoming a member of the military police.

With guidance from the program, Terrance has also become financially savvy. Understanding the importance of saving money, he adheres to his budget, has savings accounts and good credit, which will allow him to move into his own apartment this summer.

Terrance’s growth, diligence, and willingness to accept the guidance offered to him through The Possibilities Project has set him on a path to continued success and achievement. Please join Children’s Home Society of VA and Better Housing Coalition as we celebrate our first graduate of The Possibilities Project. Congratulations Terrance!
