KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- A group of mentors say that they have a single mission - helping offenders return to their communities after serving time behind bars.
"Mentoring 4 Success" is a group of faith-based mentors who offer services to help people who have been released from prison.
On Friday, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback met with representatives from 14 Kansas mentoring lead organizations.
"My mentor became like a mother figure to me," said Twyla Adair, who says she was helped by the mentoring program. "She prayed with me. She made constant contacts to help me get housed, get on my feet to get to where I need to be. "
