Welcome Home LaQuan!
Only 18 years old, LaQuan has been homeless since he was in 7th grade. Unable to maintain a healthy environment coupled with struggling with minimal resources, LaQuan and his family became homeless – this is where LaQuan ended up in foster care in 2013. This is the time when his emotional disturbances began manifesting.
Currently enrolled in high school LaQuan enjoys martial arts which affords him the ability to express himself and destress. LaQuan keeps in touch with his mother and 3-siblings. LaQuan wants to use this opportunity to live independently at Broward Housing Solutions’ Wilson Gardens while learning life skills to help him transition out becoming a self-sufficient man. LaQuan thanked his case managers and Team Broward Housing Solutions for his new home. While smiles painted the office, tears of joy flooded the reception area.
On behalf of LaQuan and the 400 residents whom Broward Housing Solutions is proud to serve, thank you to our community partners, Henderson Behavioral Health, and generous funders that enable us to fulfill our mission of providing affordable, permanent and stable housing to our community’s most vulnerable.
