“Project Homeward Bound” is a mentoring program that we started in 2010 when Dr. Anna Price was the director. We thank her and the 50 mentors that she brought with her. The mentoring program has been expanded to include Veterans and children. Project Homeward Bound’s curriculum addresses issues of age, race, ethnicity, culture, language, sexual orientation, disability, literacy, and gender. It provides mentors/life coaches to help enhance their ability in Finance, Life Skills, Health, and Wellness. It will include different topics for different age groups. Adult mentoring will include budgeting, home ownership and health counseling, both as a collective group and/or individually, and much more.
We are looking for persons interested in becoming mentors to those in need and organizations who want to collaborate on new community-based mentoring approaches. We will offer an individual treatment plan, including substance abuse treatment and referrals, life skills management, drug resistance skills, and personal self-management skills.
Project Homeward Bound mentoring includes career development, resume preparation, job retention skills, economic development, health and wellness, skills to find appropriate housing, completion of high school or GED programs, furthering education, either through receiving a college degree or receiving a trade or vocational school certificate, entrepreneurship, job search and interview preparation, and case managers to make home visits on a regular basis to maintain continuity of services for both youth and adults.
We can’t do it alone. We need you.
