Emmanuel and Mentoring

God’s heart and intention to be with us is never louder than at the Incarnation of Christ, the miracle Christmas birth of Immanuel, God WITH US. God demonstrates a desire for radical “with-ness,” the “with-ness” that had not been fully restored since the Garden of Eden, when God walked with Adam and Eve in the “cool of the day.” God again desires to be close to his people, to us. Jesus by prophetic name is “God with us,” and he promises to be with us until the end. That’s why at The Mentoring Project, we want every fatherless child to have a caring mentor.

- ART + Inspiration + Hoodies = Winter Warmth

During the winter months, many of our mentees do not have proper cold weather gear.  Some do not have warm layers and some do not have the right fit (too floppy & big / too tight & little).  Some of our mentees have only ever had hand-me-down clothes.  We want to surprise our guys and gals with slick hoodies that are warm and fit just right.

YOU can give a child or teenager a winter hoodie that is cozy and new!
