Tom and MattTogether again

The loss of a parent at any age is difficult, but for a young adult with a developmental disability, it means the loss of a best friend, a teacher, a caregiver, a role model and someone to lean on.

For brothers Tom and Matt, their mother’s cancer diagnosis was the beginning of a very difficult time in their lives. The teenagers, who both have developmental disabilities, faced the deep emotional strain of the disease wedging its way into their home and family.

To make matters worse, as their mother — unable to win the battle against the aggressive cancer — neared her final days, the financial strain of treatments and hospital stays took its toll and eventually left the teens with nowhere else to sleep but in the same hospital as their mother. Through it all, at least they had each other.

In all of that darkness, a light finally began to glow when Tom received emergency funding to move into a group home at Trinity Services. Tom was glad to be in a safe, comfortable home with friends. But Matt went to live with a relative, only to later end up in a homeless shelter. For the first time in the teens’ lives, they were separated from one another.

Upon getting to know Tom, Trinity staff learned that he had a brother who he missed terribly and was worried about. Working hard, Trinity staff members were able to locate Matt and reunite him with his brother. Best of all, they are once again able to live together in the same home.

Today, the brothers are making progress developing life skills, learning new things at school and simply enjoying being together again. Because you support Trinity, we are able to help these brothers enjoy life together.
