By partnering individuals facing housing instability with mentors who have overcome similar situations, mentees will have the opportunity to create long-lasting personal connections and receive empathetic and useful advice that focuses on their individual, holistic development. We are implementing a structure in which we can be on the same level playing field; individuals will know that instead of helping them, we are working with them to improve their situation based on their own needs, wants, and goals.
