Dear Friends,    

Although we could never capture 2019 in one newsletter, we'd love to celebrate a brief recap with you.
Impact by the Numbers
Before the 2019-2020 school year began, we had grown quicker than anticipated, matching more mentees with mentors than we projected. And we knew also the need for caring, intentional mentors was more paramount than ever. So, to meet the need in a deeper way, we set out to match 300 mentor-mentee relationships this school year. We're less than halfway through the school year, and we've impacted more than 270 lives! In fact, we've seen  272 lives impacted through MVLF mentorships and partnerships, including high-school students, college students, and single moms throughout the Miami Valley.

And the MVLF team of partners and volunteers continues to grow. This year, we've seen 54 volunteers return, and we've trained 108 new volunteers to invest in the lives of at-risk youth and adults. We couldn't be more grateful to see this unprecedented growth!

We still need mentors and funds to match these new relationships and to continue to make lasting impact. Click below for more information on how to give to our 300 mentee-mentor match campaign.

Mentorship Spotlight: Blankets & Looms of Hope
Healing and growth often come when we look beyond our
difficulties and care for and serve others in the midst of theirs. So, this year for the holidays, MVLF mentor Shannon and her mentee, Kylie, began thinking of ways to care for those having a difficult time this holiday season. After considering a few options, they decided to make a blanket together to give to Dayton Children's Hospital!

 Similarily, MVLF mentor Janie has been     teaching her mentee, Jaylyn, loom knitting.   Jaylyn has loved her new hobby so much
 that it's difficult to slow her down long enough   for a picture.
