Jesse’s House Celebrates High School Graduates

We have many reasons to celebrate the residents’ at Jesse’s House, but we have a special reason for celebration this time of year. We just had three seniors graduate! That may not seem like cause for a big celebration. After all, we live in a community where it is expected, but for the population we serve at Jesse’s House, graduating from high school is the exception, not the rule. Nationally, only half of foster youth graduate from high school and out of those, only 6-8% graduate on time. Research demonstrates that every time a child changes schools, they lose up to six months of their education and many foster youths may change schools 10-15 times throughout their education.
