This quarter, we are focusing on a few things that will help to increase mentor retention which will in turn, allow us to respond to even more people.
Our goal is to have at least 90% of our mentors continue at the end of each quarter. Although our mentoring program is not for everyone, we want to ensure that we have done everything we can to ensure the experience is fulfilling for those that give their time and heart to our ministry as volunteers.
Your prayers are coveted. Thank you for standing in the gap.
It is through the financial partnership of people like you that we can continue as a ministry, and I can be involved in it.
