What do mentor volunteers do?
Mentor volunteers are matched with those experiencing homelessness who have similar interests, hobbies or skills. Social connections can be vital for people who have been homeless to help them stay off the streets. This role enables volunteers to offer more to help people on the streets to make positive changes in their lives.
