Trusted Mentors connects trained, volunteer mentors with at risk adults to help more people stay housed and out of prison. We focus on 3 vulnerable populations who face unique challenges including:
* Young adults (18-24) who are aging out of foster care, diagnosed with a mental health issue, and young mothers struggling economically. These young adults have a higher likelihood of community disengagement, homelessness or incarceration.
* Adults (25 and older) who: face unique social-economic or social emotional challenges, e.g., chronic homelessness, suffering substance abuse and/or mental illness
* Re-entering adults, pre or post-release, who desire a supportive network that assists with employment and successful reintegration.

Trusted mentors come from all walks of life. From business professionals to the formerly homeless, our mentors are equipped with the training needed to begin sharing their knowledge and life experiences with a mentee - helping them make the positive changes they desire for a more successful future. By volunteering an average of 6 months for a year, our mentors transform lives, and our community.

Mentors work individually but are not alone. All mentors receive quality training plus ongoing support from professional staff. Plus there is the opportunity for new friendships. "So many people assume the mentor is the one who inspires; but the tenacity, hope and determination of my mentee inspires me every day. "
