Catherine and Grover Waldon’s youngest son Trevor, now age 30, is developmentally delayed. As Trevor grew closer to adulthood and completed High School, they searched for programs in Bakersfield that would enrich Trevor’s life. They wanted a place where he could make friends and feel empowered to be as independent as possible. Unable to find a program that suited Trevor, Catherine & Grover developed an enrichment program that was launched in October 2016.
