When you were seven years old life was pretty simple, right? Well, for Roger it wasn’t.
At just seven years old Roger was being taught by his family to inhale spray paint, hairspray, and nail polish. On top of all this, he was diagnosed with Moderate Mental Retardation and Cerebral Palsy.
At a time when he should have learned from role models and attended school, Roger was emulating normal behavior from
his experiences at home, leading to a bleak future of crime,
homelessness, and jail time. The Wichita Police Department
brought Roger to KETCH when he was 37 years old,
though they were skeptical that his path could change.
That was 10 years ago. Now, Roger earns a steady paycheck
making air filters and has his own apartment. His success story
is why we are asking you to consider investing in our programs.
This is how your gift can make a difference:
