Behind the Smiles: Meet Matthew

Matthew’s smile is contagious. Driven by boundless energy, he’s our resident sports enthusiast. He loves football (his favorite team being the Tampa Bay Buccaneers), and basketball and can always be found running or working out. He dreams of one day attending a Super Bowl in person! Always eager to learn and grow, he has recently set his sights on learning to swim.

Matthew became a resident with us in 2018, adapting well. He loves spending time with his “brothers and sisters”. He counts among his heroes, his parents, star athletes, and his good friend Vinny, with whom he communicates regularly. However, his newest heroes are the staff members who help him navigate through life completing everyday chores such as making his bed and keeping his room neat.

It’s no surprise that Matthew’s favorite book in the Bible is the Gospel of Matthew!
