Those engaged in our Mentor Program are survivors. They have overcome challenges, resolved barriers, and successfully made the jump from homelessness to permanent housing. And they are passionate about helping others to do the same.
Through peer-guiding, advising and supportive teaching, Transition Projects’ Mentors help those who are beginning their journey out of homelessness to identify and harness their strengths, support systems, resources, and skills.
Mentors provide motivation and navigation in obtaining employment, mental health, addictions, and medical services utilizing a strength-based and solution-focused approach. Created in 2011, the Mentor Program today has more than 170 graduates, the majority of whom have succeeded in gaining further stability by connecting to employment and community.
