My mentee and I met almost 4 years ago. Since then he has moved from group homes to foster homes to the hospital and back more times than I can count. He finally landed at White Fields and I thank God every day. White Fields has offered him the consistency and stability he never had anywhere else. That, along with people that truly care about him, has helped him grow in ways that I did not think was going to be possible. Thanks to White Fields, I have hope for his future.
