Clarence's Story

Clarence, 9, a resident at the shelter, shared his dreams with Hubbard House staff. He wanted his mom to be safe, to sleep in a real bed of his own and to be at his grade level in school.

At Hubbard House, all his dreams came true. His mom was finally safe. His bed was his alone. And, after receiving lots of extra help with his schoolwork and working very hard with his Hubbard House teachers and advocates, he tested at his age-appropriate grade level.

The day Clarence and his mom left Hubbard House was a joyful one. Clarence’s mom had a job and had secured a safe place for she and Clarence to live, and Clarence was thrilled, over the moon, in fact, to be entering the third grade.
