The pandemic has created a big need for mentors at Saint Luke’s Crittenton Children’s Center residential and foster care programs. Studies show children with a mentor perform better in school, have healthier relationships, and are less likely to use drugs and alcohol.

This week, as we kick off National Mentoring Month, we are talking to Wanda Taylor, Director of Community Development at Saint Luke’s Crittenton Children’s Center, about the important role mentors play in the lives of children and teens most in need.
