Foster parents make all the difference: Is it right for you?

We call our foster parents Mentors because they do so much more than provide a home to a child in need—they help children grow and learn, forever changing their lives. By opening your home to a child in need and becoming a Mentor, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference in their life. You’ll also receive the tools, education and support from the expert team at Ohio Mentor that you need to be successful as a foster parent. What’s more, the bonds of family you will create can last a lifetime.

A Perfect Match

In order to create the best matches possible between our Mentors and the children they serve, we consider the needs and preferences of both through our comprehensive matching process. Proper matching takes time and is well worth the investment to make that “perfect match.” The matching process is designed to ensure that you, your family and the foster child who comes to live with you are comfortable so that you can develop a meaningful relationship. A successful match can forever change lives for the better.

We’re with You Every Step of the Way

As a Mentor, you will receive comprehensive 24/7 support from The MENTOR Network team. Our services and supports include case management, 24-hour emergency on-call services, medication management and much more. You’ll never be alone. Our highly trained team of coordinators, clinicians, supervisors and more will be with you every step of the way. We also connect you with other Mentors and host support groups so that you can share experiences and learn from your peers.
