A laptop for Kiean who recently moved to a new town

Posted Dec 21, 2017
Kiean is requesting a laptop so that he can do his school work from his new foster home. Kiean recently moved towns and is being transported to his old school everyday. This allows him to remain in a school he is familiar with but cuts down on his time and ability to do some of his work. The school he attends does a half day once a week where he works on his online courses. He does this work from home now but has to share his computer time with several other foster youth.

Kiean is 17 years old and lives in Salem, OR

Kiean is the middle sibling between his younger sister and older brother. They have been in care for just around 4 years. Recently they have been removed from their foster home that they have shared for 2 and a half years and have been split up among different homes. With this move each sibling is having to not only adjust to a new home and family but also adjust to not being together every day. Kiean is fairly quite although when he gets with his friends and siblings he is a spunky young man. Who loves to tease his siblings. He enjoys working with his hands building and taking apart electronics and engines. He has learned much from his previous foster dad and son who work in mechanics. Kiean hopes to one day work as a mechanic.
