Yvonne’s Heart, is a mentoring and transitional program for young ladies ages 12-17 and young women ages 18-30. Our goal is to assist young ladies through challenging life transitions, including dealing with stressful changes at home or transitioning to different phases of adulthood by providing mentoring, life skills training and coaching. Yvonne’s Heart partners with middle schools, high schools, colleges and churches to provide educational and life skills training to help young ladies develop advanced life skills, career potential and to improve their connections to advanced education. The program components include one-on-one mentoring, monthly group sessions, peer support, specialized workshop sessions and transitional services.
Through mentoring and transitional services, Yvonne’s Heart will empower, encourage and enable the young ladies we serve to achieve higher education, stable housing, employment and abuse-free relationships. To achieve this vision Yvonne’s Heart will focus on programs that meet our core values and mission, create safe environment that fosters growth and provide opportunities for the young ladies we serve to give back and become leaders in their communities. Our vision is to open our first transitional home by 2015.
