The Family Mentor program provides volunteers who have gone through thirty hours of training to work with our at-risk parents for a minimum of ninety days.
A Family Mentor visits the home of the parent each week and helps them to develop a variety of life skills surrounding sobriety, budgeting, organization, parenting, health, nutrition, education, career goals, job searches, and coping skills.
The purpose of the Family Mentor program is to support and encourage struggling parents in the hope that they will be able to parent successfully, long term.
Goals of the Family Mentor Process:
1. Prevent children from entering or re-entering the child welfare system.
2. Empower parents to become more independent and self-sufficient.
3. Help parents achieve their goals and identify healthy, viable community resources.
4. Encourage more emotional and social stability to the child and the child’s family.
