What Can I Expect?
An SOS mentor is a parent who has had experiences or concerns similar to those you are having now. They have been there.
Your SOS mentor is there for you to talk to. You can share your feelings, frustrations, or celebrations. They are there to listen with an open heart and open mind. Remember, they have had experiences similar to yours!
How Do I Start the Process?
There are several ways to start the matching process:
- Call us toll free at
- Email us with your request
- Fill out our online application form
After we receive your request, we will ask you a few questions about your situation, and talk to you about what kind of a match you would like.
How can I become a Mentor?
If you are a good listener; if you are willing to share your experiences with others; and if you have time to make a few phone calls or send a few emails, then you can become a volunteer SOS mentor.
We do require that mentors complete our orientation program either by attending a group Mentor Orientation session or by making individual special arrangements.
