Pathfinders All children need an adult to help with homework, listen when they have a problem, and push them to be their best so Pathfinders pairs fatherless boys and girls in our community with an encouraging mentor.  Mentors are positive role models, that encourage life-long learning, and remind kids that they have what it takes to stay on a successful path in life. This is a one year commitment and training is provided.  We are currently in need of both male and female mentors for kids who are waiting to be paired right here in Loveland.  If you’re interested in getting involved, please contact Greg Knake at 513-205-5864 or
