The Meeting House Mentor Application
Our Mission is to Inspire “Fun, Friendship & Community” between kids and their world.
We help children develop their social and emotional selves in ways that will empower them throughout their lives. We are a recreational / therapeutic after school and weekend program. Through exciting group activities and enrichment classes, we help children with social, emotional and communication challenges.
