MEET CHARLES J. STECKER, JR.

Charles displayed his first acts of courage and heroism at the tender age of 4 years old by attempting to rescue his 2-year-old brother. While being brutally beaten himself-resulting in a permanently disfigured arm-he did all he could to save his brother, tragically it wasn’t enough. The woman who murdered his brother and critically injured Charles had another child die in her care just 10 months prior, she never went to trial for either death or her assault on Charles. He has made it his life long quest to seek justice for not only his brother but all abused and murdered children.

          Throughout his young life, Charles was abused in every way possible. He constantly lost family, friends and belongings. He was consistently moved from home to home leaving him feeling unwanted and unloved. He was never able to get a solid education or establish himself in a community. He was failed by his birth parents, the child welfare system, the justice system and by society as a whole.

Charles is a Hero to Multitudes, a Children's Rights Warrior, and a Parental Responsibility Advocate. In addition he is a Community Leader, Activist and Volunteer.

Tune in each Wednesday this month as we feature the authors from the book, “i Excel HIGHER”: a collection of poems and expressions from foster care alumni. Fascinating and Enlightening Stories!!!
