Who is Vincent James Mentoring?


Jim fostered Matt for 13 years until Jim’s passing when Matt was 15 years old. A loving father, Jim cared deeply for those around him Jim’s example and Jim’s love is the foundation of VJM. It was his love for Matt and the way he included Matt as his own son that gives Matt the hope and strength to reach troubled teens and families today. Jim showed that family isn’t about who you share blood with, family is who you share love with.


From age 2 1/2 onward, Matt lived in foster care. His relationship with his biological family was rocky to say the least. As a teen, Matt’s life hit more bumps as he experienced the deaths of seven loved ones in six years. His path ahead was lost. Matt was spiraling downward.

Matt started attending a teen outreach in 1999. As he regained his direction in life, he continued to grow and joined the staff at the outreach. He was involved at the teen outreach for 12 years, first as a teen, second as a volunteer, finally as a staff member.

The lessons learned from his foster dad, Jim, have prepared Matt for this journey and led him to found Vincent James Mentoring with the clear goal of reaching kids like him and their families.
