The Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, has recently awarded a local non-profit organization, Unity Family Community Center, Inc., grant funds in the amount of $200,000 to provide mentoring services to children ages 4-18 in Levy and Marion counties.
The program will serve youth whose parents are incarcerated in local, state or federal correctional institutions.
The program will create quality, lasting one-to-one relationships that provide children of offenders with caring role models for future success.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor or would like to refer youth to the program, please contact the following staff:
Joyce Wilson, Program Director, at 352-528-3556 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
