Cedric learns progress is a gateway to possibilities
Like many of the youth who come through the doors at the Omaha Home for Boys, Cedric arrived with some baggage.
Along with his duffle bag filled with clothes and other personal items, he also brought his own history of poor choices that he made while living and going to school in Lincoln.
First, there was an arrest for vandalism, followed by one for theft. He smoked and hung out with the wrong crowd -- influenced by people he knew didn't have his best interests in mind.
Cedric said his seven months at the Home have given him perspective about where he'd been and where he wanted to go. It didn't take long for him to start making the right choices for his life.
