The Jason Witten Score Foundation has made a significant difference in the lives of young boys through its mentoring program at The Family Place.
In our shelter, we welcome teenage boys who face challenges that no one their age should ever have to confront. Overwhelmingly, anger becomes their prevailing emotion, a reflection of the traumatic experiences their mothers have endured. At The Family Place, it is our responsibility to help these young men regain trust, establish boundaries, and acquire essential life skills as they transition into adulthood. We strive to create a safe and supportive environment, devoid of judgment.
Introducing male mentors into our program has yielded remarkable outcomes for these boys. They have had the privilege of interacting with and forming relationships with positive male role models, fostering personal growth and enhanced communication with adults. The shelter, where their mothers seek refuge from abusive situations, often leaves them without positive male examples to emulate. The Scorekeeper program opens their eyes to the existence of good and kind-hearted men who act responsibly and genuinely care about their well-being.
Under the guidance of Michael, who oversees eight young men each day, the impact of our program has been truly remarkable. The boys eagerly participate in their time with Michael, cherishing the attention and care they receive from him. Gradually, they have grown more comfortable sharing their thoughts and experiences, learning to express themselves in positive ways. They have discovered a confidant in Michael, someone they can turn to when facing troubles.
Seeing the young men flourish through their interactions with mentors like Michael has filled us with hope and gratitude. We firmly believe that the Scorekeeper program must continue at The Family Place, as it plays an invaluable role in shaping the lives of these boys. As long as Michael remains partnering with us, he will continue to make a difference in their lives, nurturing their growth and development.
We are immensely grateful for the support and generosity that have allowed us to provide this life-changing program. Together, we are creating a future where these young men can heal, grow, and thrive. Your continued support is vital in ensuring the success of initiatives like the Jason Witten Score Foundation.
