Kevin's maternal grandmother, Mary Ellen Bizer, has guardianship of Kevin and his four siblings. Kevin's father is deceased and his mother has been in drug rehab facilities, hospitals, and is currently presumed to be living on the streets of Manchester. She does not have contact with her children. Kevin has three older brothers, Shane (graduated from high school last year, applied for Job Corps, but was not selected), Keith, and Jayson, and a younger sister, Harper. Harper has had severe medical issues since birth. Ms. Bizer has had guardianship for several years and does her best to provide basic needs for the children. The home is hectic, and she has difficulty managing the boys, overseeing homework, etc., but she has been a consistent, loving presence in their lives.

Personality / Social Standing:
Kevin is an incredibly sweet, caring boy who is well-liked by his peers. He presents as more immature and introverted, but is very talkative (especially to adults) and engaging. He is grateful and open to academic supports, and is easily redirected or cued from adults.
Kevin is an honest, open student. Like I mentioned above, he is somewhat more immature than his peers, he is not socially savvy, and he wants to please. This could result in going along with the group even when he knows it is wrong. He has no behavioral issues or infractions at school.
Kevin is a wonderful candidate for the Mayhew Program! His older brother benefitted greatly and Kevin is even more accepting and appreciative of help. Kevin wants to do well, and wants to please; he is kind, compassionate, and funny. Because of his family situation, he does not get a lot of personal attention or guidance. He told his Health teacher after a puberty lesson that he doesn't have anyone at home to "talk about this stuff with." The activities, lessons, friendships that happen through the summer camps would boost Kevin's confidence, and the mentoring would provide him a trusted, consistent role-model which he desperately wants. I sincerely appreciate your consideration and would be happy to talk to you further about Kevin.
