At The MENTOR Network, a Mentor is a person who makes a difference in the life of an adult with intellectual or developmental disabilities by opening their heart and their home. Our Host Home Program has some similarities to adult foster care because an adult comes to live with you in your home—and yet is different because the adults we support have the same freedom of choice that all adults enjoy.
As a Mentor, you’ll help the person you support thrive as part of the community and make a difference in their home life, while earning extra money to help make ends meet. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, a retiree looking for a way to make a difference, or a social services professional with experience caring for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, you can become a Mentor. All it takes is the desire to help someone in need.
