We Need Your Help
Mentoring teams are an integral part of Family Rescue Ministry. When you become a Family Rescue Mission Mentor, you provide relational, emotional and spiritual support to participating families and seniors.
Mentoring is critical to a homeless family or senior's ability to be self-sufficient. This is an excellent opportunity for a small group to be involved in hands-on outreach to those in need.
"The mentors often say they are the ones who are blessed.” -Tom Melton, Senior Pastor, Greenwood Community Church
“I couldn’t hold back the tears. People just wanted to help us. Not for any reason, but just to help.” - Kim Banks, Program Participant
