Ivan was concerned about all of the recent violence he had seen on TV and wanted to do something special… from his heart.

A greater need here for a village to help mentor children
(Photo: Robin Zielinski / Sun-News) January is National Mentoring Month, a time to recognize the people who
have inspired us to strive for something better. For some in our
community, there’s no shortage of people willing to lend a helping hand.
For others, options are limited. In southern New Mexico, where the
rates of impoverished homes and single-parent families are well above
the national average, there is a greater need for the village to help
raise a child.
There are many wonderful programs in our community that bring neighbors together. One of them is Big Brothers Big Sisters. I was recently matched with my little brother, 13-year-old James. This is a story about their first BIG adventure.
