A heartbreaking story of parental abuse:
Joel was frustrated that his parents wouldn’t provide his immunization records to the school or to him. He found out that his insurance had either expired or they had canceled it,” Alice said. “He had to go and sign up for Medicaid himself as an independent adult and he had to check ‘homeless’ on the form. They basically threw him out and they don’t want anyone helping this kid. This has been really, really emotionally difficult for Joel—I’ve heard that kid crying himself to sleep at night—and he’s such a great kid. He has talent. If you met him you would get why he has so many people are pulling for him.
