Kelly and Jacob's Story

Kelly and Jacob have been meeting weekly during the school year since October 2022. They enjoy building with Legos, playing with STEM activities from the Waverly Public Library, and doing craft projects. At their first meeting, they each answered questions about themselves to help get to know each other. Jacob enjoyed the question cards so much, the match continued answering one question a week when they were together. One week in early spring, the question was "what is a goal you have?". Jacob got teary-eyed and responded he would like to return to his home school. Jacob has been at the Lied Center for nearly 2 years. After sharing his goal with Kelly, she helped him find out what he needs to achieve to get back to his elementary school. Kelly is also providing him the support and encouragement he needs to achieve this goal. The last few weeks of the school year, Jacob was able to attend a few classes at his home school to start the transition.

Jacob and Kelly have both told our Executive Director that they look forward to Mondays because they get to see each other. Jacob actually said he used to feel like Garfield on Mondays, but "now, I like Mondays because I get to see Kelly".
