Landon, age 7
Landon* is 7 years old and lives in Norwalk with his mother and sister. Landon is greatly in need of a positive male role model and clings to any male who will give him attention. He loves to play outside, play sports and games, and most importantly: all things related to dinosaurs :) He likes school and would greatly benefit from the attention of a male.
Isabelle, age 11
Isabelle* lives with a guardian in Norwalk and is in need of someone who shares her race to go out and do things with. Isabelle is African-American and her guardian has requested a mentor of the same race so she can learn things about her heritage. She spends a lot of time at home and would love to try new things. She gets along well children and adults. She loves music & dance and would greatly benefit from a mentor!
Kyrah, age 11
Kyrah* lives in Norwalk with her mom and two sisters. Kyrah loves one-on-one attention and could use some help with homework. She loves playing outside and doing arts & crafts. Kyrah is a sweet girl who could use a little help with boundaries and would flourish with some one-on-one attention.
Kathryn, age 15
Kathryn* lives with her grandparents in Monroeville and love make-up, crafts, and all things girly. She functions at a much lower mental age than her physical age and enjoys playing with younger children. She does have strongly fluctuating moods, so her grandparents are looking for help to control those moods and to find things to keep her entertained.
Ivy, age 16
Ivy* resides with both of her parents in Willard, but could use someone to talk to who is an impartial party. She needs help making good life choices and do fun things with. She likes art, music, bowling, and swimming. The family would love to see her gain confidence in herself and not seek out males to make her feel special.
Winston, age 8
Winston* lives in Norwalk with his mom and brother and is in need of some special one-on-one time with a positive role model. He loves almost everything! Including but not limited to: baking, sports, bike riding, playing outside, and building Legos. He loves school and gets along great with both kids and adults, he could just use some attention from an adult who cares about him.
Julie, age 11
Julie* lives with her mom & sister here in Norwalk, loves bike riding, swimming, and playing outside. Mom would like to see her make new friends and get a little help with reading. Her mom works full time, so Julie would love some one-on-one time with a mentor.
Cody, age 11
Cody* lives in the outskirts of Norwalk with his great aunt & uncle and needs a mentor who can help him improve his social skills and keep him active. He likes to show off for other kids and needs a lot of attention. Cody likes hands-on activities like bike riding and hiking, and would enjoy a mentor who has kids he could befriend.
Titan*, age 12
Titan lives in Collins with his grandmother, but goes to school in Norwalk. He lives with his brother and grandmother and doesn't have any contact with his parents. His grandfather died a few years ago, so Titan is in need of a good male role model who will play outside with him. He loves almost all sports as well board games and cooking.
