Since 1997, Hillcrest Family Services has made a difference in the lives of children and youth in our community through mentorship. Supported by a professional staff and advisory council, these one-to-one relationships have helped build friendships and provided emotional support to countless youth. Research shows that children with a mentor are more confident in their school work performance, less likely to skip school, less likely to begin using illegal drugs and alcohol, and get along better with their families.
