ORGANIZATION: Child Advocates of Placer County


Child Advocates of Placer County Family Mentor program provides trained volunteer Mentors to parents whose children are in the foster care system or at risk of entering the system. The Family Mentor visits the home of the parent each week and helps the parent develop a variety of life skills surrounding things like health, nutrition, budgeting, organization, home care, education, and career and job search.

The minimum commitment for a Family Mentor case with a parent is 90 days. After the initial 90 days both volunteer and parent can reassess to see if they want to renew their contract and continue on with their relationship working toward success together. Our program provides all of the necessary training to work effectively with the parent.

The goals of the Family Mentor program are:

  1. To prevent the child from entering or re-entering the child welfare system.
  2. To help the parent(s) become more independent and self-sufficient.
  3. To end the cycle of child welfare involvement in these families for the next generation.
If you are interested in making a difference in the life of not only a parent but their whole family, please provide us with your name, email, and phone number so we can get you into our next informational orientation meet-up to get started!
