The MENTOR Network

Constance & David West Mentors, MENTOR Maryland

Mentors since 2002 with MENTOR Maryland’s medically fragile children’s program in Baltimore, Connie and David West have opened their home to some of the most medically complex children served by The MENTOR Network. In addition to the Wests’ three biological children, now all adults, Connie and David have adopted three boys and currently support two additional young children—all of whom live with complex medical conditions.

“Connie and David West are special,” says Dianne McGinn, Program Director at MENTOR Maryland and the Wests’ nominator, in addition to being a fellow award recipient. “They have big, open hearts for kids with extreme challenges and a unique capacity to make it all look so easy!”
