Mentors needed for Homeless Shelter The Iowa County Homeless Prevention Coalition is looking for volunteers to mentor families/individuals who are living in the homeless shelter and/or transitional housing. If you would like to assist a family in their efforts to find consistent and safe place to call home, this may be an opportunity for you to serve. Mentors would plan to meet at least weekly with their mentee over a period of 2 - 6 weeks. One could expect to work with 2 to 3 families over a course of a year. The primary responsibility would be to provide moral support and assistance in moving beyond the issues that cause homelessness. Training and resource will be provided.
