Read our stories to learn more about becoming a Mentor and the life-changing impact of our programs.
Become a Mentor
We call our foster parents and Host Home providers Mentors. Being a Mentor is about more than just opening your home to someone in need—it’s about opening your heart and your life. When you take in and care for a foster child or an adult with developmental disabilities, you’re giving them things that money can’t buy—a helping hand, a home, and family. As a Mentor, your actions show that we all matter and deserve to thrive.
Therapeutic Foster Care
In our Therapeutic Foster Care program, caring foster parents help youth at risk by providing nurturing supports in a loving family home. By opening your home to a child in need and becoming a Mentor, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference in their life. You’ll also receive the tools, education and support from our expert team that you need to be successful as a foster parent. Learn More
In our Host Home program, individuals with developmental disabilities live with their Host Home providers, who we call Mentors. As a Mentor, you’ll help an individual with disabilities thrive as an active part of the community while earning extra money to help make ends meet. You’ll also receive tools, education and constant support from our expert team. Best of all, you’ll be making a difference and creating bonds of friendship and family that can last a lifetime.
