There are many people that want to grow and change, but lack the support system to consistently do that. We match volunteer mentors with at-risk adults; people that may be homeless, have recently gotten out of jail or people that are aging out of the foster care system. The impact of our approach positively effects homeless rates, incarceration rates and helps people build their support network. It transforms lives and in doing so saves our city thousands of dollars annually. I spent many years working for the church; Trusted Mentors grew naturally out of that. The volunteers and funding make our service and mission possible, and we hope to become a model for other cities and areas to follow in order to help at-risk adults near them as well.
—Jeri, executive director and founder of Trusted Mentors
