(This amendment provides $50,000 the first year from the general fund to Hand and Hand, Inc. The requested funds would be used to support two mentoring initiatives. One program will focus on providing mentoring assistance to school-age children who attend public schools in the Tidewater area. The other mentor program, named AMACHI, will target children of incarcerated parents. Currently, Hand and Hand, Inc., has formed a coalition with 20 major organizations to include faith-based organization, law enforcement representatives, community-based groups and the Corporation for National and Community Services to support both mentoring programs.)
