Virtual Mentors: Empower Families Who Have Exited Homelessness

Save to Favorites

Imagine LA

  • 27 people are interested



During the COVID-19 crisis, we are embracing a virtual mentoring process in which our training, mentor kickoff meeting, and all mentor activities will occur virtually. After COVID, all mentors will begin the "in-person" chapter of their mentee relationship.

WHO: Imagine LA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of family homelessness and chronic poverty via a supercharged blend of mentoring and social services.

WHAT: We are actively seeking volunteer mentors: individuals from all walks of life who are committed to fighting intergenerational poverty and homelessness in Los Angeles and play an essential role in fulfilling our mission. Our mentors are eager to work in a team of like-minded peers and commit to a long-term volunteer position that's incredibly fulfilling.

WHERE: This is a virtual opportunity during COVID-19 and can be done from anywhere, including the comfort of your home. After COVID passes, all mentors will start the "in-person" chapter of their relationship.

COMMITMENT: Mentors commit to twice-monthly sessions, for up to 18 months, based on the family's needs.

HOW: Imagine LA's professional staff of social workers trains all Volunteer Mentors on our innovative Family Empowerment & Mentorship model, which utilizes intensive family case management and supercharges it with mentorship and access to private and public resources. We then match our Volunteer Mentors with families who have experienced homelessness and are now housed. Working in teams, they ensure the families maintain their housing, attain self-sufficiency, and thrive.

WHY: Thanks to the support of volunteers like you, all Imagine LA Families remain in housing; incomes are up 71%; kids are thriving in school and graduating; and all receive regular medical care and are building crucial wellness habits.

ACCESSIBILITY: L.A. Works firmly believes that we strengthen the social fabric of our community by involving all in service. If you feel you need accommodations to participate in this project please email us at info@laworks.com.

QUESTIONS: Email Kim Kirui at kimberly@imaginela.org.
