Over the 14 years Idalina and Naja Moujabber have been foster parents, they have not only helped countless children, they have influenced the next generation of caregivers. Two of the children have become Mentors, inspired by the change in children’s lives they witnessed in their parents’ home.
Selwa and Brian Grandison believe that all children will grow physically and mentally, as long as they have a little love, understanding, and the freedom to be themselves. The proof is in their household and the children they have opened their hearts and home to as Mentors with New Jersey MENTOR.
Brady Carlberg, who started his career with REM at an intermediate care facility, came to the REM Heartland program in 2016. The program is one of only three of its kind in the state and can serve no more than three individuals at a time due to the children’s challenges.
