The mission of Rusk County Community Connections is to improve the quality of life for families and children, adults with developmental disabilities, and the elderly by providing volunteer mentors and activities that promote and support stability, friendship and community.
|Mentors come from all walks of life and all age groups. One vital characteristic they all share is a willingness to be a caring friend and guide. Mentors fill out applications, which include three personal references, a background check, drivers license check, and an interview in their home.|
|The Mentor's friendship is meant to encourage and uplift the child. Mentors give their time and talents without charge, but their role in the life of the child they are matched with lives on in the heart of that child forever.|
