"I could talk to my Imerman Angel’s mentor and express myself emotionally, and they understood. I decided that I had such a wonderful, positive experience with my mentors that maybe it was a way for me to give back so I’ve become a mentor myself.”-

“I searched everywhere. When I connected with my mentor at Imerman Angels, it was the first time I was able to feel, truly understood. I have made new friends that are now walking with me through this. In one conversation we were able to cry until we laughed, it feels so good. I know someone else out there could use the same.”
