Today, I attended a kick-off meeting for a local Homeless Education Literacy Program (HELP). I learned many lessons at the meeting that reinforce our priority of meeting the literacy needs of homeless youth and families, moms and children torn by domestic violence, and young people enrolled in mentoring programs – and the power of magazines provided to support mentoring relationships. We discussed many scenarios about homeless students – each overwhelming on their own, and especially so when considered together as the underlying tattered fabric of this and too many communities. There were stories about children living in temporary motel shelters; families living in cars; and overtaxed relative care. There were also success stories – all along a common thread – that for each there had been one person – a caring, appropriate, dependable adult engaged in a child’s life to provide guidance and support. This underscores the importance of mentoring and demonstrates that one person truly can make a difference in the life of a child.
