Make a direct and long-term impact on someone’s life, and your own, by becoming a mentor at Denver Rescue Mission.

Mentors help men, women and families struggling with homelessness and poverty by providing additional support as they go through the Mission’s rehabilitation and transitional programs.

What Do Mentors Do?

  • Mentors provide relational, emotional and spiritual support to men and women participating in the Mission’s programs.
  • Mentors meet one-on-one with their mentees and communicate in others ways (phone call, text or email) when needed.
  • Mentors commit to mentoring for roughly six to nine months.

How Does Mentoring Work?

Mentoring opportunities are available within several of the Mission’s life-changing programs. Program participants in need of mentors may be in one of our life-changing programs at The Crossing, or in aftercare programs that are helping them establish stability in a long-term housing solution. Opportunities for volunteers to mentor in teams may also be available.

Who Do Mentors Work With?


The New Life Program equips men struggling in homelessness and sometimes addiction to become productive, self-sufficient citizens. Men are needed to invest in the life of program participants through one-on-one meetings.


Women experiencing homelessness receive safe housing, case management, life skills classes, youth programming if they have kids, and more. Mentors support participants through one-on-one meetings.


The Mission provides families, refugees and seniors in need with assistance with their first month’s rent and deposit toward a long-term housing solution as well as mentors from the community who help them develop important life skills in budgeting, family needs, and more.
