Low-income families face enormous stresses. The pressure can severely disrupt family life and lead to homelessness. Our Family Mentoring program is designed to help families overcome these stresses and to prevent homelessness. It serves as a model for replication by Family Promise IHNs.
In the Family Mentoring program, economically vulnerable families are matched with trained volunteer mentors who work with them, one-on-one, over an extended period.
Mentors help individual families define and meet goals to:
Mentors build committed, trusting relationships. They listen. They offer understanding and respect. They help families overcome challenges and disappointments and celebrate successes.
