A Parent's Story (2016)

My son gets so much out of being in the Friends Program and having a mentor. He always looks forward to seeing his mentor. His mentor, Joe, is a role-model type person, which my son doesn’t otherwise have in his life. The two get along so well. His mentor brings out the best in him. My son has more confidence and shares stories of new accomplishments he experiences in his mentor’s care. He always returns saying he had a great time. Putting my son in this program is one of the best decisions I have ever made for him. The program and those involved with it are accepting and encouraging of him for who he is. I can’t tell you how important this has been for us.
