The adults who receive our services are often experiencing the effects of living in poverty and deal with previously being incarcerated, being previously homeless, or come from other disadvantageous situations. Many of these people are struggling to jump through the hoops that governmental programs have put in place to make them prove they are worthy of help.
At Trusted Mentors we have a program that doesn’t force them to prove they are worthy; instead we accept them for who they are and look forward to helping them achieve who they can be. Here you will have the flexibility to work with these people by providing them with a voice of reason that is non-judgmental, empathetic, supportive, and objective. You will also be given training and support to help you succeed with the mentorship. Immediately, you will help reduce the amount of isolation that many of the adults feel. These powerful relationships help reduce homelessness rates in Indianapolis, future crimes, and parole violations. Please watch our short video to see the power of these relationships: https://vimeo.com/111005408
In addition by attending our events & fundraisers, you will network others just like you who share a passion to help others in need. What to do Next?
