When Carlos was just six years old, he was placed in foster care because his mother and father engaged in severe domestic violence and allowed gang activity in their home. Carlos was raised in an environment where people responded with violence and rage to every question and problem. The terrified little boy witnessed his father kicking his mother and beating other individuals for things as simple as looking at him the wrong way.

By age seven, Carlos was unable to stay in a foster home due to his violent outbursts and deeply instilled rage. It was determined that he needed more intensive services and so he was sent to St. John Bosco Children’s Center. Carlos now receives the help he needs through counseling, positive male role models, and individual attention in crisis situations. He thrives under the care of the professional and skilled staff at the center, and now he can imagine a life without violence.
