Kieran is a considerate, humorous and bright individual. He has been involved in the shelter’s domestic violence program throughout the past five years, and it has been a privilege for the staff to watch him grown into the young man he is today. Despite his unfortunate circumstances, he maintains a positive outlook and showcases his talent through art, sports and music. He has an amazing ability to build things and his love of cooking has inspired him to one day become a chef! Kieran missed three months of school and was therefore a grade level behind. His perseverance for classwork has been well worth it – he currently maintains a ‘B’ average. His progress is commendable given his history of witnessing and experiencing physical abuse within his home life.
