School Year: 5th Grade
About: Jesus (Chuy) is Mili and Esme's brother and is one of just two boys in our care, having been abandoned at age 3 along with his sisters and cousin who were brought together as a family unit. He arrived in heartbreaking condition, suffering from starvation and delayed development. We have worked extensively with Chuy to help him overcome his challenges, including after school programs, one-on-one tutoring and professional speech therapy. He has shown incredible resilience and has grown into a happy, healthy boy. Chuy's favorite activity is soccer and he is crazy about cars!
