Our Policy regarding Mentoring:

Eileen & Callie’s Place is a 501(c)(3) faith-based organization committed to empowering, educating, and coaching young women aged out of foster care. These young ladies need genuine relationships, mentors who are truly concerned about their well-being and their future.  The fulfillment to what is needed is clearly expressed in Jeremiah 29:11:

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

We, therefore, require that ALL of our mentors be in agreement with the our mission and vision  and approach this program with the love and commitment it deserves.  Applicants seeking consideration as Mentors will be governed by our Mentor Program Policy. Completing and submitting an application acknowledges that you have read and agree to abide by said policy.

All applicants are subject to background checks and personal interviews prior to being accepted into the program.

Purpose of mentoring program:

  • To help young ladies (18-24) who have aged out of the foster care system develop a positive vision for the future.

What does a mentor do?

  • Develops a trusting relationship with the mentee,
  • Creates a safe learning environment,
  • Facilitates the mentee’s growth by sharing resources,
  • Coaches the mentee on particular skills,
  • Focuses on the mentee’s total development, and
  • Challenges the mentee to move beyond her comfort zone.
