About Mentoring

"I was 18, homeless, with a 6-month-old baby boy, no job, and I had pretty much messed up my schooling. Youth Services has helped me get my life back on the right track. I joined their Young Moms support group where I meet my mentor, Diana. She motivates me to succeed and give me tips on how to handle my very active two-year-old son. I'm hoping soon to have a job and afford my own place. I just wanted Youth Services to know how important this relationship is and will continue to be."
