Mayan & Marquis SquareNo one should have to grow up alone.

Growing up in the foster care system, Brandon, 17, almost did. But thanks to Silver Lining Mentoring and John, his mentor, he’s had a consistent guiding force in his life since he was 7 years old. Brandon says:

“Lots of people have been in and out of my life, but John is different, he’s the only one who has been with me for the last 10 years.”
