Metropolitan Family Services Southeast Community Center
Behavioral Health Program
Leonardo loves reading — a lot more than math. He participates in programming at Metropolitan Family Services’ Southeast Community Center. He shared that it is “fun” and enjoys that it also incorporates his love for drawing. Leonard also enjoys illustrating comics and playing video games from this family’s living room with his two dogs. He strives to be a video game programmer when he grows up.
