Honoring the Mentoring Futures Together Program

Volunteer mentors and children who are part of the Mentoring Futures Together Program recently enjoyed a special evening at the XL Center in Hartford, thanks to UConn Athletics.

Mentoring Futures Together is an innovative, collaborative program that provides mentoring and guidance to children of parents who are incarcerated. The program was launched a year ago under the leadership of Dr. Josephine Hawke, of the UConn Health Center’s Department of Psychiatry.

At a recent UConn women’s basketball game, not only did the Huskies provide a winning performance over Seton Hall, but the group from Mentoring Futures Together also heard some inspirational, personal words from Assistant Coach Marisa Moseley and former UConn player and current radio host, Kara Wolters.

It was a memorable night for all. My thanks again go to UConn Athletics for making this happen and to Dr. Hawke for her continued success.
