Honor the

Mentors and Mentees That Have Transformed Your Life
Group 556

Relational wounds are healed in relationships.

The consistent support of one person can change a life.

That’s why we believe in the power of Everyday Superheroes like YOU to fight against the injustices of foster care.

Make a gift on behalf of your mentor or mentee—and share why they continue to inspire you—so that more youth in foster care can have hope for a brighter future.


Would you be 1 of 65?

This Giving Tuesday, we’re raising $10,000—so more youth can receive the mentorship and support they need to look forward to a brighter future.

To get there, we need…

“Claudia has been my "big sister" for 47 years now! She paid attention to details about things I loved as a kid and taught me about the power of making people feel special. She went above and beyond for me in big and little ways. The ways that I show love to people today are largely inspired by Claudia."

“Kate D. - An infectiously positive person who can really make the best of any situation! Love her so much!"

“My ninth grade English teacher Sylvia Chambliss required her students to keep a journal so we would make a practice of writing. She read and commented on all of the entries I submitted to her. She made me feel seen and heard, and she helped me find my voice."

Rebecca E.

"I have had the privilege of serving as a mentor and a facilitator of two wonderful teams, and the humor and resilience of the youth I've gotten to know is endlessly inspiring."

"Giving in honor of Rosalind Moser -- a mentor who was like a surrogate grandmother to me. She was always a safe place to land when life was hard. She taught me to appreciate nature and animals and to love others who are different than me."

"Bobbi was a work mentor who has become a dear friend. She offered wisdom and encouragement during challenging times and unwavering support."
