Ashleigh is thirteen years old and was admitted to the shelter due to neglect after her primary caregiver was found positive for substance abuse. She has an upbeat and positive personality, and is respectful to others – staff and peers included. She originally had a difficult time upon admission to the program. Since that time, she has demonstrated the capacity to own up to her mistakes and follow the rules. Ashleigh’s family is showing marked improvement and we look forward to the day when they can all be reunited.
