Changing ‘Lost’ to ‘Found’
Adam was just 14 when his family life finally fell apart under the weight of ongoing domestic violence. For his own safety, he was removed and placed in out of home care.
Once he turned 18, Adam was on his own and totally unprepared for the responsibilities of finding and keeping a job, securing rental accommodation and paying his bills.
He drifted for a while, staying where he could, picking up unskilled casual work when available. He had nowhere to call home, and no purpose in life.
One day Adam turned up at Baptist Care SA’s WestCare Centre and asked for help. He wanted a better future for himself and felt helpless as to how to change his life direction.
