cathedral home for children

The Cathedral Home for Children just north of Laramie is a boarding school for teens that have had traumatic experiences. Besides providing a safe space, the home helps the kids deal with their emotions. This summer they’re trying something new – drumming circles.

A former resident of a youth home in Laramie has been awarded $300,000 in his civil lawsuit stemming from a sex assault case involving the resident and a female counselor.

An Albany County jury sided with the former resident of the Cathedral Home for Children in Laramie. The lawsuit arose from a 2009 criminal case in which former counselor Katie Joseph was arrested for having a sexual
relationship with the resident. She was 31; he was 17.
