Help Change a Life Forever!
Changing Lives Forever Program Information:
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”
Changing Lives Forever is a 16-week class to help individuals living in poverty to find resources and develop a plan to improve the quality of their lives. Once participants have a plan, mentors will work with each participant for a year to help them to achieve their goals.
Become a Mentor
“A Mentor can make the difference when change gets really hard – the difference between giving up or moving forward with hope and faith!”
Graduates will need a Mentor to offer a listening ear and practical help, someone who can be a cheerleader and a sounding board for ideas and problem solving. Women and men from IHM are needed to work one-on-one with a graduate 4-6 hours a month. Training, resource materials and ongoing support will be provided to help mentors in their role of empowering others.
