 We want to thank our donors, sponsors, our wonderful volunteer board members, the parents and guardians who looked to us to help them raise their children by providing a healthy, rewarding mentoring experience to the most valuable asset in the home, the children, and the awesome and incredibly generous volunteer mentors who have made such a lasting positive difference in the lives of thousands of children through our quality mentoring programs. 

I have had the privilege of working with so many wonderful people from so many different walks of life over the last 21 years that I have been with this agency.  I wish all of you and yours well in all future endeavors.   

- M. Dolores Medina-Whitfield, CEO

  • 52% less likely to skip school
  • 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
  • More likely to get along with their families and peers
