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.
