We recently received a call from a mentor who was helping her mentee with homework, and was concerned when the child's eyes were too tired to read or finish her assignments. The mentor, Jennifer Watkins, asked if we could get the girl glasses. When we looked into the situation, it turned out that despite years of complaints about her eyes, increasing headaches, and evidence of declining grades, the eleven-year-old had never had an eye exam. Unfortunately, most children in the throws of homelessness do not get an annual eye exam. In this case, the mentor took the initiative to solve a problem that had been developing over time. We are happy to report that we took the child to receive an eye exam and she was recently fitted with new glasses. Now this student can easily see the chalkboard at school and can read without eye strain. Identifying and responding to this need is one of the many ways we go "beyond mentoring" on a daily basis for our kids.
