A laptop for Hiliaza who had to leave her old computer behind

Posted Apr 5, 2018
Hiliaza had to leave her previous home very last minute. Hiliaza was living with a family friend and when she was brought to the house to pack her belongings, the woman she had been living with did not allow her to bring her laptop since she had purchased it for her. Hiliaza is a junior in high school and uses a computer for all of her school work and will be starting to look at colleges and doing college applications this summer. Hiliaza has taken this move in stride but is very frustrated that she was not able to take all of her belongings with her to her new foster home.

Hiliaza is 18 years old and lives in Everett, MA

Hiliaza is a young woman who was recently moved into one of our agency's foster homes. Hiliaza unfortunately had to be separated from her yopunger sister in the move as the family friend they were staying with was unable to continue to keep the two girls. Hiliaza had to suddenly switched schools and while she was very disappointed to leave her school and her friends, she took everything in stride, immediately found a new part-time job and was involved in her new school's show choir team within a few days.
