This past May,  Mentoring A Touch From Above (MATFA)–a Long Beach non-profit that works with incarcerated and at risk youth to help them become positive, productive young adults–honored founding partner Skip Keesal for his continued support at its Fifth Annual Dinner, themed “Forgiving the Unforgivable.”

Specifically, MATFA works with jailed youth, helping them to take responsibility for their actions and then re-enter the community as responsible young men and women. The organization also works with at-risk youth in local schools and provides housing for young people who are re-entering society after being incarcerated.

Skip is humbled by the recognition and inspired by the dedication of MATFA’s staff and volunteers to put at-risk and incarcerated youth back on track.
