Know a Child Who Could Benefit From a Mentor?
Many underprivileged kids haven’t ventured outside their neighborhoods. Friends First wants to change that! Our mentor outings range in visits to art museums and strolls on college campuses to simply playing Frisbee in a park.
By connecting with a trusted adult on meaningful, fun-filled outings, a child can develop a better vision for his or her future beyond the limited horizons that hold back far too many children.
Mercy Home for Boys & Girls has been helping children in need since 1887. We provide the young people in our full-time care the tools they need to overcome early trauma and become successful, contributing members of society.
Mercy Home is committed to raising the public’s awareness about children in need, and our Friends First Mentoring Program is leading the way. Mentors not only enrich lives, they help young people make better choices that promote self-development and opportunity.
Again, if you know a child who could use a mentor, please contact Tilisha Harrison, Friends First Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 312-738-7560.
