Mentors walk alongside each mom and assist her in envisioning and realizing her future through obtaining the skills and resources needed to make the necessary changes in her life so she can create a loving, healthy and functional home for herself and her child.


The mentor program is an opportunity to become the hands and feet of Jesus for moms in the community. The mentor assists and guides moms to reach spiritual, physical, career and personal goals.
