"When I sought out this program for my daughter I was desperate to help my daughter find healthy friendships, ways to communicate, and positive people to be around to show her there are many things in this world she could be joyful for. I'm seeing so much progress. This momentum is a must for her success as she begins high-school. The mentor and I can work together to help my daughter work through social situations like peer pressures and decision making and obtain goals." ~Parenting Adult
