Gaining confidence: Gabriel’s story

“We are so thankful for the help we received. I’m a single custodial grandmother and Gabe is the only boy in our home with his three sisters and I. He has gained so much confidence and has a positive way to use his energy in his karate class! Without the funding support, I would not have been able to sign him up due to the cost. He is almost a full orange belt (he’s an orange belt with a yellow band). It has been awesome watching him strive! We are so grateful for the opportunity.”

“He has gained so much confidence!”

Stephanie, Gabriel’s grandmother
