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.

  • 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. Some of these programs are at The Crossing, a residential facility housing our STAR Transitional Program and New Life Program participants. Other mentoring opportunities are available through our off-site transitional programs, Family Rescue Ministry and Family Refugee Services.

Find out more about mentoring in each of these programs below.

STAR Transitional Program

In the STAR Transitional Program, families and individuals experiencing homelessness receive safe housing, case management, life skills classes, youth programming and more. Mentors support participants through one-on-one meetings.

Family Refugee Services

Refugees often have limited relational and material support. Through the Mission’s Family Refugee Services program, these families are partnered with a mentor team from the community to help with important life skills in budgeting, family needs, and more.

New Life Program

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