Encouraging Academic Success

Derek came to Epworth last summer as a 15 year old after experiencing a childhood of neglect and poverty at home. His parents struggled to care for him as they came in and out his life. Derek essentially grew up on the streets. He learned to “look out” for himself, but he never learned the discipline or value of education.
