Joe is an amazing Big Brother to Little Adonai. They have been matched for about a year, beginning the mentorship in the after school program at Westway Gardens in Elyria. Joe was in the Culinary Arts program at the Lorain County Joint Vocational School when the two met. He now goes to Lorain County Community College. Joe and Adonai both wanted to continue in the program. Adonai has no male role models in his family.
Joe quickly helped to fill that gap, constantly keeps in touch with Adonai and takes an active role in making sure homework is completed. Adonai knows he can count on Joe who goes above and beyond to make sure Adonai has a caring role model in his life.
Jeri Leigh is an exceptional Big Sister. She is a busy professional who believes in giving back to the community and has a passion for helping children. Jeri Leigh was matched with her Little Morgan for almost 2 years. Since that time, Jeri Leigh has guided Morgan in becoming a confident and independent young woman.
She attends Morgan’s choir concerts and encourages her in school. Morgan is a sophomore at Elyria High. She decided this year to emulate her Big Sister Jeri Leigh and become a Big herself. She now volunteers at the after school program at Franklin Elementary School. We hear that she is also making a BIG impact in the life of another child.
