An update on Clemente
A great update from a former Casa Shalom kid: This year, Clemente, 16, was able to return home to live with his mother. He is finishing high school and putting into practice some skills he learned at the orphanage. As one of the teens who took part in a professional baking course, Clemente earned a baker's license and is now working part-time at a bakery near his home to help support his family while he finishes his education. This is exactly what we strive for at Casa Shalom - to give our kids the skills they need to be successful after leaving the orphanage!
