Breaking Cycles:
Mandy’s Story

Sometimes, life events happen when a person gets older, but for Mandy Cabral-Hangsleben (formerly Mandy Zeigler), she says her life changing event happened at Boys Town New England back in 1990.

Mandy landed at Boys Town after what she calls “generations of trauma.”

“We all know the story of what some youth go through,” she said. “First, foster home to foster home, then to group home, then maybe another group home, then back to a foster home. I was so thankful I ended up at Boys Town.”

Mandy reached out to Boys Town recently, wanting to thank the people who helped her learn valuable family lessons.
