When Chris Young needed to start eating healthier, his guardian advocate, Marilyn Florey of LOGAN Protective Services, arranged for him to take cooking classes at LOGAN. He learned how to prepare healthier snacks, like apples with caramel dip, and how to plan a healthy menu.
Chris was the only student, and the class was tailor-made just for him.
That kind of individual attention gives Chris a special bond with his LOGAN “family.” He’s been a ward of LOGAN Protective Services for more than seven years. He’s so comfortable with his guardian advocate, he calls Marilyn, “Mom.”
Chris receives residential support services from Res Care, whose staff work hard to give Chris every opportunity to thrive.
One of his passions is football. So on Friday nights, Chris takes his place with the Knights on the sidelines at Marian High School football games. He’s considered a volunteer “coach” and cheerleader.
Chris’ enthusiasm for his Knights caught the attention of ABC57 News Anchor Vahid Sadrzadeh. Click here to see Vahid’s feature story about Chris Young.
Chris is just one of the many LOGAN Protective Services success stories!
