“Life with Frankie was horrible” says his mother. He was skipping school. He was into drugs. He was into alcohol. It was very discouraging to see what was going on with him – to the point that Frankie’s mom was pretty sure she’d one day be visiting him in prison. Then Frankie was partnered with Eric, who mentored him and loved him unconditionally.

Eric provided support and encouragement to Frankie, taking him out and spending time with him every week. Talking, playing pool, watching movies… the time they spent together resulted in some major changes in Frankie’s life.

Watch the video below to learn the rest of Frankie’s inspiring story.
