About Families Plus
This mentoring concept was developed in 1998 by Dr. Brenda Holland, a practicing clinical psychologist in Delta County. Dr. Holland brought together a group of community professionals and citizens concerned about children who were living in poor, chaotic, and dysfunctional environments throughout the county. Out of this group, a new type of community-based program for children was initiated. Mentors were going to be families who would make a permanent commitment to the child with the help of a mental health care professionals. Prevention of youth problems was the goal. This new family mentoring idea caught on quickly because of the neighborly spirit in our sparsely-populated, agricultural-based community. Within five years, almost 35 children in Delta County had been matched with their permanent mentoring families.
