It all started in Provo, Utah, and now exists in 16 states across the country.

Hudnall, as well as mentors from the group, are featured in this week’s issue of People magazine.
They speak about the many mentors, peers and those who seek out help from the Hope Squad mentor group including those here in Utah.
