Kerri had a difficult childhood because of her family circumstances. When Kerri came to TGTHR, she had been sober for almost a year and had graduated high school. Her goal was to go to college and get a job, and TGTHR was her first “community based” placement where those goals could become a reality. While Kerri was at TGTHR, she was accepted into the University of Colorado’s class of 2015. She got a job working at a restaurant on the hill and was soon prepared to move into the dorms in late August. She also climbed a 14,000 foot mountain (Mt. Bierstadt) for the first time, made new friends in Boulder and at CU, and is working at a job that she says is “great”!
