Today, The Creating Dreams Project recognised 19 year old Samuel* for his outstanding achievements in transitioning into independent living.
Having spent most of his childhood in Foster Care, Samuel recently moved into Westcare’s Transitional Services Program (TSAY).
During Samuel’s time in the TSAY program, he has modeled proactive behaviour. He has demonstrated a willingness to learn and engage in essential life skills such as cleaning, budgeting and cooking with success.
Program manager for Transitional Services, Ralph Salera, noted Samuel’s determination in his journey to transition into independent living.
Ralph emphasised his confidence in Samuel’s ability to use the skills he has learned throughout his time in the TSAY program and apply them in his own life.
His case manager, Alyce, nominated Samuel for the award. She warmly reflected on his initiative to start a flower and herb garden in the property and see the project through to completion.
To acknowledge his hard work, the Creating Dreams Project presented Samuel with a Collingwood Football Club Membership. The diehard football fan was also given a Collingwood jumper to wear and parade.
The Creating Dreams Project congratulates Samuel on the hard work he has invested in ensuring he has a positive future.
