By the time Luca was in 3rd grade he had experienced physical abuse and emotional neglect. His grades were failing and his behaviors landed him in the principal's office multiple times a week.
Then Luca met John, his Big Brother.
Fast forward 2 years, Luca is doing great in school, all A's and one B. He's not been in the principal's office weekly, in fact, he's only been once all year. Luca was trying before but trying is easier with his Big Brother John. Sometimes we're not brave enough to care about ourselves until someone else shows us we're worth it.
Help show kids like Luca that they're worth it - be part of their story.
