Women Who Dare to Change Mentoring Program will focus on recruiting  and training adults, ages 21 and up as Life Coaches who are willing to cultivate long-term relationships with M.W. A . customers and their families. These caring adults must display a strong  desire to support and empower mentees. They should also be emotionally  stable, mature and socially savvy persons who are willing to bring security and hope to our customers. Life Coaches and customers will engage in one-on-one or group activities that are  individually planned in accordance with policies of BFL and within the boundaries granted by the Program Director.


  • We plan to provide a circle of influences around our customers.
  • Some customers may have more than one Coach.

  • Our Coaches collectively will posses multiple talents that will enhance the success of the program.
  • The book Fierce Women by Kimberly Wagner will drive the spirit of the group.
