Darlene wants to be there for her mentor just like her mentor was there for her.
Darlene is kind, happy young woman who has been in the foster care system all her life. She has endured so much throughout the years, but has remained courageous and resilient through it all. She has recently moved into a two bed room apartment with her boyfriend and 1 y/o daughter. She has also started a full time position as a home health aide.
Darlene does not have any family-she only has Children's Aid and Family Services and her mentor, Lisa. Lisa has been her mentor for 7 years, and Darlene considers her to be "her mom.” Even though Darlene has aged out of foster care, she remains very close to Lisa who continues to be there for her.
Lisa will be getting married in October 2016 and very much wants Darlene to take part in her wedding. The wedding destination is quite some distance, so Lisa will need some support to fly Darlene out. Darlene is wishing for funds for travel expenses in order to attend Lisa’s wedding in which she would be forever grateful.
