Eric and I have been involved with Cafe Momentum for almost 3 years........You may have seen the FOOD posts from our monthly dinners on my Facebook page; BUT that's not all we do......Eric mentors the young men and also participates in the weekly Thursday night Career Classes. He encourages the men on how to better themselves once they are released from the Youth Village. He is not allowed to contact them once they are released, they have to reach out to him. IF they do reach out, Eric meets with them and helps them get jobs. He even bought one of them his work uniform the day before he was to start work.
It warms my heart to see the young men flock to "Mr. Eric" when we arrive to the dinners. They're ALL run over to him.....Mr. Eric...Mr. Eric.......Of course, you want to help everyone - Not everyone wants to be helped, but if we can help ANY of them - it's feels good in your heart. If you know us, you know how giving we are and fortunately we were raised to help others as much as we can.
PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO.......
“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.”
Eric was crowned Mr. Momentum 2013 for his Career Class Mentoring
- the guys LOVE him!
