National Mentoring Month (NMM) is the largest-scale mentoring campaign nationwide, culminating each year with the National Mentoring Summit.

This year’s theme will reflect on the past 16 years of National Mentoring Month, real life mentoring relationships that have been formed and are thriving, and the incredible impact mentoring has had.


January 2017 marks Tabor’s adolescent caring appeal and public awareness and recruitment campaign, In Real Life.Tabor will be focusing on raising funds for youth who are preparing to  “age out” of child welfare and on to independent adult lives, as well as sharing In Real Life stories to inspire mentors and highlight the impact mentoring has on both the mentor and the mentee.

January 1st-31st you can make a tax deductible contribution to our Sadowski Adolescent Caring Fund in honor of National Mentoring Month! Your charitable contribution will provide our “aging out” youth with motivation & success!

Our youth “age out” of the child welfare system and on to independent adult lives each year. We help them through this process as a traditional family member would.

Charitable contributions directly impact their future success by  providing them with mentor relationships, life skill training, educational assistance and housing resources.  Your support motivates our youth and prepares them  for  success as independent adults who will lead positive and productive roles in community and society.

Recap: 2017 Cheer All Year Event

Thank you to all of the donors and volunteers who helped us spread cheer this year by providing our children and youth with holiday gifts!

Without the support and generosity from local businesses and individual community members, we would not have been able to accomplish our goal and provide every child with a gift and a memorable holiday!

CHEER ALL YEAR, formerly known as Tabor’s Holiday Program, provides gifts for over 700 children and youth from Philadelphia, Bucks County and Lehigh Valley. This annual program begins in October and offers individuals, groups and organizations the opportunity to “adopt” specific children and fulfill their gift wishes or provide general gifts for children.

Recap: 2017 Winter in Wonderland

Many children under our care do not live with their families and may not have been afforded special holidays that most children get to experience during the season. With the understanding that visitation and time together supports parent-child relationships as well as eases the pain of separation, our event seeks to bring families together under proper supervision and provide our children with a memorable and positive holiday experience.


Recap: The 2nd Annual Taste of TABOR Event

The 2nd Annual Taste of TABOR Event

Thank you to all those who attended and supported the second annual Taste of Tabor – a delicious good deed – Chef’s Showcase event on May 22, 2017. The proceeds of this event are directly assisting more than 600 local youth transition onto independent lives.

More than 250 guests and 40 volunteers enjoyed a lively evening of gourmet food from the area’s finest restaurants. Eleven Tabor youth had the opportunity to work directly with these restaurants and help prepare gourmet samplings for you to enjoy.  The evening’s music was provided by Diversity, the Lenape student Jazz band and youth singer and songwriter Kayla Avatable … and they were fantastic!

Fully independent Tabor graduate and Temple University graduate, Nefertari “Tari” Sloan, returned to the event this year to MC and introduce our two 2017 youth speakers. The youth identified Tabor as, “an institution of investments.” Their success is your success. They reminded us all that, “when people support by giving their homes, their time, their service, donations, and support – they are essentially making an investment in children, youth, and future success stories, just like them.”  We couldn’t be prouder!

Active enthusiasm during our auction items and live appeal was contagious.  We are grateful for the level of commitment so many have to the Tabor mission and vision.  Please join us next year!
