Terry's Story Kentucky United Methodist Homes

Terry spent his childhood trying to buy affection. He felt no love at home from his mother who was an alcoholic and drug addict. He rarely saw his older brother or sister who lived with his cousins and he never really felt like he fit in. Out of desperation, he would try to buy his friends and win their attention . . . at any cost.

Terry's history of neglect led him to The Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth. It was during this time counselors worked with Terry to help him understand his past and why he had such a problem with stealing.

Today, Terry owns his own business and donates his time to a number of local schools and organizations.
