We are looking for members of the community 21+ who would like to mentor a foster child in need / living in a group home. This is perfect for someone who would like experience working with children in a meaningful way and can be used as a professional experience as well as helping a child.

Our mentors are matched with one child each who they spend 8+ hours a month with, helping them to build life skills, have fun, and be an extra line of guidance in support. You can take them out for ice cream, to the park, or just hang out! Even small things make a huge difference to the foster child. Our foster children have experienced abuse, neglect and abandonment and greatly benefit from a friend / mentor / advocate who can be in their life for 1 year minimum.

Let's help to reduce the foster care statistics together!
