Community Care;3/25/2010, Issue 1811, p32
The article reports on the transformation of a juvenile delinquent who was arrested for assault. He was moved through two children's homes, but nothing seemed to help, until he moved to Advanced Childcare's home with a focus on young people of south Asian backgrounds. After eight months here, the man now appears a happy, well-adjusted 14-year-old. He attributes this transformation to positive role models at the home.
