At Illinois MENTOR Community Services, we believe everyone deserves to live in and be part of the community they call home. For individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, however, that opportunity may be limited. That’s why our partners at The MENTOR Network pioneered the Host Home model more than three decades ago.
In Illinois MENTOR Community Services’s Host Home program, adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities live in private family homes with dedicated caregivers who we call Mentors. We call them Mentors because they are teachers, advocates and family to the individuals they welcome into their homes. As a Mentor, you will receive 24/7 support from our experienced team of professionals, skill development opportunities and the reward of making a difference in someone’s life. Plus, the bonds of friendship you create can last a lifetime.
