Helping Foster Youth Take Flight
Post-Emancipation

print

BY GAIL MATSUNAGA
From Dateline (August 19, 2004)

Jenny Mohr
Although students aren’t required to check in, except maybe once a semester, the Guardian Scholars Center, says Jenny Mohr, director of the Guardian Scholars Program, is “used like you cannot believe. The majority of our students come in for the camaraderie, the support, computer services and TLC.”

Titan alumna Jenny Mohr has run a homeless shelter, a crisis clinic and a group home, in addition to working as coordinator of the After Care Program for Orangewood Children’s Home. Now she directs the Guardian Scholars Program, which acknowledges the accom-plishments of students who have left the foster care system, were wards of the court or come from similar backgrounds.
