Need for Mentors in Delaware County

January is National Mentoring Month.

And here in Delaware County, the mentoring program continues to grow. Ellen Krogmann with Helping Services of Northeast Iowa says mentoring is offered to any child between the ages of 5 to 16… and she says it’s all about adults spending quality time with kids who could use a positive role model in their life.

There are currently mentors in the West Delaware, Maquoketa Valley and Ed-Co school districts – but they could always use more.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor or if your child could benefit from a mentor, contact Ellen at Helping Services at 563-379-3454, visit their website at or check them out on Facebook.
