Silver Lining Mentoring empowers youth in foster care to thrive through committed mentoring relationships and the development of essential life skills. We are the only mentoring organization in Massachusetts, and one of the few in the country, exclusively focused on youth impacted by foster care.
Through our programs, youth impacted by foster care build relationships with caring adults, develop important life skills, and access resources they need to navigate adulthood. Approximately 200 of Boston’s young people age out of foster care annually – this means that when they turn 18, the state is no longer legally or financially responsible for their well-being and they are thrust into the adult world alone.
Through a community of supports and relationships, Silver Lining Mentoring helps grow resilience in young people who are all too often without the resources needed to thrive.
Thank you for standing with our young people!
