Silver Lining Mentoring is honored to be one of six organizations selected to receive a gift from the New England Patriots player’s social justice fund. The team started the fund in 2018 to support organizations focused on justice and racial equality. This year, Patriots players chose the theme of ‘legacy’ to guide their giving. As an organization that just celebrated our 20th anniversary, we are grateful to be recognized for our legacy, and we look forward to carrying on our work to empower youth impacted by foster care.

Last week, Silver Lining CEO Colby Swettberg received a surprise call sharing the good news. On the other end? Bill Belichick, Devin McCourty, Matthew Slater, David Andrews, Michael Palardy, and Deatrich Wise, Jr.
