Mentor

Do you have a heart for helping people one-on-one who could use your support and guidance to get back on their feet? We have a perfect opportunity for an individual like you!

As a volunteer mentor, you would be paired with a current guest of the Mission interested in mentorship who is preparing to be housed. While they are with us, you would have the opportunity to get to know each other. After move out, you would continue to connect periodically to encourage them, connect them to resources, and more. We will offer you the tools needed to be successful if you bring the fire in your belly!

If you’re interested to apply as a volunteer mentor, please print, complete, and submit the following application and waiver:

Make & Distribute Hygiene Kits

This is a great group project that can be done in many ways! Groups have collected the items and assembled kits at their location to bring and drop off as a donation. We’ve also had groups come assemble kits with the items we’ve received. Even more fun than that is going out our front door to distribute the completed kits to community members in need and pray with them. If this sounds like it’s up your alley, contact Ann to make a plan:
