Christian, Bert Road Resident
For Christian, his favorite part of living at the Bert Road home is being surrounded by his friends. When he moved in many moons ago, his mother was scared for him his first night there. She had met Janet, who has been looking after The Arc Jacksonville’s residents for almost 20 years. Janet slept on the floor next to him that first night just in case he needed something.
During the quarantine, Janet brought Christian to the window so they could have a few moments together.
“I am so grateful to have found the perfect place for my son. It’s even more than a place to call home; for Christian, it’s a family. As a parent, having a home for Christian means the world. Your support is the reason Janet was there for my son.” – Brenda, Christian’s mom
