Facility:SafeHouse Denver, Inc.
While staying in the shelter with his mother and sister, Horace impressed the staff. He easily communicated – to the shelter counselors and his mother – his concerns about their current situation and future of his family in a mature, appropriate manner. Despite the obstacles he has faced, Horace has not only maintained his grades, but participates in extracurricular activities like basketball, where he excels. He is dedicated to everything he puts his mind to, and sticks with it. He is compassionate, caring and a strong leader. He always takes the extra step to help someone who needs assistance. He is a seeker of knowledge, always asking questions. Most of all, Horace has stood by his mother’s side and wants to learn more about her and follow up in caring for his family unconditionally.
