Kenan Cottage – Isaac’s New Start

Kenan Cottage – Isaac’s New Start

Isaac’s mother left shortly after he was born, resulting in a very close bond with his father.  Due to negative peer influences, Isaac became involved in substance abuse, and later the court system.  His father’s own substance abuse led to the determination that he could not provide a stable home environment.  Isaac was removed and placed in therapeutic foster care.


Thompson is making an impact on Isaac by providing him with coping skills to deal his mother leaving and temporary separation from his father. He is also receiving treatment and education on the effects of substance abuse. Isaac just celebrated being discharged from residential care at Thompson with a fresh haircut. He is now looking forward to his father finishing treatment so that they can be together again.
