A Church-Based Approach to Ending Family Homelessness

Start a Mentoring Group

We are delighted that you are interested in offering friendship to a family facing homelessness! To form a mentoring group at your church:

  • Discuss the possibility of a mentoring group with as many people as possible within your church, such as members of Sunday School classes, women’s groups, small groups, or the mission committee. Bridge of Hope has brochures, DVDs, and bulletin inserts that explain mentoring.
  • Invite a Bridge of Hope staff person or volunteer to speak at your church about this ministry opportunity.
  • When 8 to 12 people commit to being in a mentoring group, the Bridge of Hope staff will train the mentors and match them with a single mother and her children.
