Good Choices Graduate Receives Scholarship from LAPD!

May 5, 2023

This young lady was a graduate of the “good choices” program at age 9! She is now a young adult and just received a scholarship from the LAPD. She and her parents credit the Happy House Good Choices program played an important role in her success. Well done and congratulations, Ms. Contreras!


I was in the Jr Cadet Program at LAPD Foothill Stationparticipating in the Good Choices program since the age of 9 years old. From this program I learned in many ways to understand good to bad. I learned respect, responsibility, and communication. The knowledge that I obtained led me to where I am now.

Getting help from Ms. Carol helped me a lot; she tutored me and improved my reading and math skills. I’ll always remember the lesson of the “Swiss cheese.” I am now 18 years old, graduating high school with good grades and going to college. I’m thankful to this program because it changed and improved me and showed me that whatever I set my mind to, I can achieve — because I have.

I have been a trainer to several Jr Cadet classes, passing my learning to younger kids in this program. I am an example, since I was once in their shoes, and I show them how this program will lead them to much more.”
