Founded in 1980, The MENTOR Network is a national network of local health and human services providers in 36 states offering an array of quality, community-based services to adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain and spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries and illnesses; to youth with emotional, behavioral and medically complex challenges, as well as their families; and to elders in need of support.
We asked Network employees to share why they do the work they do for our What’s Your Why? contest, and we were wowed by the responses we got. Watch this video to meet some of our team members and hear them share their why.
Over a 13-year period, Leilani Lagua welcomed more than 37 foster children into her home. A few years later, she felt the calling again and this time reached out to California MENTOR’s Family Home Agency in Stockton to open her heart and home to an adult in need.
