Team-Based Mentoring for Foster Youth

Make a lasting impact in the lives of youth in foster care

Through our team-oriented approach to mentoring, we help heal the wounds of foster care by building trusted and supportive relationships

Explore your potential as you consider becoming a mentor

It can be tempting to stay in our comfort zones as we begin to hear that familiar call to get involved and contribute...

Maybe we're fearful that we don’t have the capacity to serve in a meaningful way or wonder if the little time that we do have could actually make a difference in confronting systemic issues like the trauma of the foster-care system. The Braid Team can help you explore this opportunity and your potential!
