Mentor Spotlight

We’re thrilled to show our appreciation for Mike Dorris in this month’s Mentor Spotlight! Mike is semi-retired, and a former law enforcement officer who enjoys devoting his spare time to serving his community.  He finds joy and satisfaction in helping others reintegrate and has gone above and beyond to provide guidance for his mentee, Chris. In the past few months, Mike has supported Chris as he’s navigated a new job, found new housing, enrolled in CDL classes, and overcome various other barriers.

“Mike is a man of his word. He did everything he said he was going to do,” Chris tells us. “He provided me with a book to help me with my CDL licensing. He joined me at church to pray to God and be on the same page with God. He gave me a foundation. He’s caring and checks in to make sure I’m alright. He’s the type of friend that you can call at any time and he seems to always say the words you need to hear to help you through your problems. He’s a blessing. My days go so much smoother knowing that I have a friend like mine. For the first time I find myself feeling safe in this crazy world. When I have a conversation with my mentor, it supports me in putting my best foot forward. Thank you, Mike! I don’t know if I would’ve made it without you. Thank you and God bless.”
