NFP of NOTE: Trusted Mentors

Trusted Mentors uses the power of mentoring to help adults establish stable lives by reducing the chaos brought about by poverty, homelessness, underemployment and the effects of incarceration. These person-to-person mentoring relationships improve lives by developing life skills and positive social networks that empower people to remain housed, make a positive contribution to the local community, stay or become employed, advance their education, stay out of jail, and improve parenting skills. The organization accomplishes these goals by providing quality training to equip volunteers with the resources and techniques needed to be effective mentors, matching adults referred by partnering agencies with trained mentors, and fostering ongoing mentoring relationships by supplying useful information, guidance and positive activities.
