Hand in Hand Family Mentorship's goal is to bring hope to struggling families through friendship and mentorship.
The Department of Health and Welfare, Boise City Lights, and Family Advocates send referrals to Hand in Hand of parents who could use support and friendship as they learn how to create healthy families.
These are good families, but struggle due to little tradition of family stability in their own upbringing. We receive these families/individuals and pair them with a friend and mentor.
There is no specified program; the measure of success comes as people feel that someone cares and is watching out for them.
Our mentors keep in touch via text, email, phone, or an occasional visit. They connect them to more friendships within their immediate community and become a sounding board as they make choices and try to get their lives in a better place.
These healthy, one-on-one connections are leading people to want to fix their own lives, rather than someone telling them what needs to be fixed. It's the power of compassion, friendship, and connection.
Becoming a mentor means becoming a friend. The value of human connection for hope and healing cannot be overstated.
