The MENTOR Network is called a “network” for a reason—it’s not just one person or group. It’s a national network of people, in communities like yours, across the country, who are joined by the common belief that positive, nurturing relationships are the basis for growth and change. And that these relationships are best fostered through active participation in the daily activities of neighborhood and family life.
In our Host Home and Therapeutic Foster Care programs, foster children with emotional, medical and behavioral challenges and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities have the opportunity to be part of families and their communities.
We call the people who open their hearts and homes to these children and adults Mentors. Our Mentors are the backbone of our organization—making a difference in the lives of the people we serve. In return, our Mentors have the opportunity to make a difference at home, earn money to make ends meet, and experience the intangible benefits of providing and guiding another.
At The MENTOR Network, you’re never alone. Ask any Mentor who they rely on most, and you’ll probably hear, “My coordinator!” Our coordinators and clinical staff are available 24-7 to ensure that you have the support you need—every step of the way.
