A man and a woman looking at a piece of paper.

We are so grateful and appreciative for those MOH friends who have stepped up to become a MOH Mentor for our new class of Mission of Hope scholars. However, we still need 6 more mentors. We have included our Mentor Program Guidelines below. If you would like to become a Mission of Hope mentor, and get a special blessing, please call Diane Webster at the Mission of Hope office at 865-584-7571 or e-mail her at [email protected].

Thanks for your friendship & support and for all you do to help us extend The HOPE.

Sincerest Regards;
Emmette Thompson, Executive Director – Mission of Hope
