We welcomed Mark (at left, with mentor Dean Hearn) back to Interfaith Works. Many years ago, Mark at 12 was the oldest in his family of six children headed by a single dad, and they desperately needed help. We connected them with a trained volunteer mentor team from St. Mark Presbyterian, who worked with the family to get through some difficult times.

Mark and Dean_Aug 2015Today, Mark has completed law school, passed the bar and is working as a lawyer. He reached out because he wanted to re-connect with some of his mentors and simply say, “Thank you.”

He told the mentors, “I wanted you to know how much your work pays off.” He added, “You served as great models for us …. We flowered so much because of your help.” Mark now hopes to volunteer with Interfaith Works, guiding other young people going through tough transitions.

If you would like to get involved with our Family Services programs as a volunteer, please call 301.315.1104.
