I have volunteered for Family Pathfinders for almost a year now. The organization helps and touches people in stages of their lives where they need financial guidance and direction the most. Program benefits include Savings Match Programs, 0% interest loans, and a good foundational series of coaching classes to help people achieve financial stability. I am thankful for the opportunity to give back to the Tarrant County Community as a volunteer for Family Pathfinders. The staff are awesome to work with!!

I have served as a mentor since 1997 --and as a board member for the last 4 year. I consider my volunteer service as one of the most important faith walks in my life. I have seen both mentee and mentor grow in understanding and service. Each mentee has shared their hopes and dreams with us as they find their pathway to a better future. I have seen staff and board members, who have a servant's heart, work together to strengthen best practices and support systems needed by mentors and their clients. This excellence is attracting a growing number of members from my church to join this ministry, and assures me that this is a top non-profit that makes a significant difference in our community.

I started volunteering with Family Pathfinders almost a year ago. I had been a single mother myself and knew how much support I needed and financial problems were always my biggest hurdle to tackle. Thank God I had a nice family to count on, but it was difficult nevertheless because of all the roles a single mother has to play - caregiver, breadwinner, learn to help your children without neglecting yourself. That's why I jumped at the opportunity of mentoring and helping another mother move to another level. I was connected to a single mother with two children to help her get out of assistance and into self-sufficiency. Through this year I have been helping but also learning a lot myself. Family Pathfinders has had my back all the time, giving me first the tools and then advice and information about resources whenever I need it. I can ask Randall High anything, and he always comes through with the information I need. I really admire the work this organization is doing, helping those who need help the most to move out of situations by dealing with the blocks to self sufficiency, and I particularly admire the work they are doing in their reentry mentoring program.
