Most successful people can point back to one or more mentors who modeled positive attitudes and behaviors, believed in them, and encouraged them along the way. But the majority of men and women experiencing homelessness never had mentors like these. One of the keys to restoring them is to connect them with mentors who can help them rebuild their lives.
Union Rescue Mission is partnering with local churches, faith communities, and other agencies to connect families experiencing homelessness with mentors who will walk with them as they transition out of experiencing homelessness. We also encourage faith communities to reach out to one local family on the verge of experiencing homelessness every year and help restore them to health and stability before they lose their home. We must focus on prevention and recovery simultaneously.
