FAMILY PATHFINDERS OF TARRANT COUNTY
October 25, 2013

When I started volunteering as a mentor for clients in the Family Pathfinders of Tarrant County Re-entry program, I found committed, caring, and professional staff who were dedicated to their mission and purpose. This organization targets people who cannot succeed without a network. Through expert evaluation and training, each client is provided tools and resources they will need to successfully start a new life. Members of this network include volunteer mentors, community workers, and professionals who teach, train, and nurture someone who might otherwise go back to their old life and connections.
As a mentor, I met individuals who touched me with their stories that told of past failures and drug or alcohol dependancies. Family Pathfinders helped to make the difference in a life, once lost to drugs and incarceration, now clean, productive, and self-supporting. I was proud to be a part of Family Pathfinders volunteer program.

FAMILY PATHFINDERS OF TARRANT COUNTY
November 8, 2012

Mentoring someone who simply needs help with skills I have is an easy way for me to give back to the community, and FAMILY PATHFINDERS OF TARRANT COUNTY provides the perfect opportunity. It is gratifying to see how lives are changed through the efforts of this organization. I've personally talked to women who have been able to get off drugs, go back to school, gain employment skills, and take control of their lives because of programs offered and follow-ups implemented through this nonprofit. Come Join Us in this fantastic opportunity to make a difference!
