Todd's Story

When 14-year old Todd aimed for the basket and yelled “slam-dunk!” the points scored registered well beyond the basketball court. The fact that Todd could successfully participate in a team sport, plus have a group of friends to play with, was not in his playbook when he arrived on Bellefaire JCB’s residential campus two years ago.
