Who Are Mentors?

Mentors are men and women who are dedicated caregivers providing individualized supports and services in their own homes and communities.

Mentors represent a wide range of backgrounds, but one constant among Mentors is their commitment to the well-being and personal growth of the individuals they serve.

To be a Mentor, you must be at least 21 and have:

  • A commitment to make a difference in someone’s life
  • A desire to learn and connect with others
  • A valid driver’s license
  • Reliable transportation
  • An extra bedroom
