*Samuel (name changed to protect his identity) is 20 years old. He has been a ward of the State since he was 16 years old, when his birth parents left the US to go back to their home country. Sam has perservered even when facing tough emotional and physical obstacles. His older brother was killed in an automobile accident shortly after his abandonment, and his younger siblings were placed in separate foster homes. Sam agreed to enter a job training program about a year ago. He has been able to successfully navigate the system and has learned valuable skills that will enable him to gain employment as soon as he secures a means of transportation. Through the kindness of strangers, he has been given a truck! The truck needs work to get it into running condition. Again, through the kindness and generosity of a local business, Gold Coast Cadillac, they have agreed to do the repairs at a very discounted rate of 50%. Sam still needs to come up with $1500, however. This truck will be the key to Sam's success in his life of gainful employment going forward.
