Mentor a Homeowner
Become a Homeowner Mentor
Want to help someone in your community become a successful homeowner?
Volunteer to help mentor one of our future homeowners as they work their way through our homeownership program!
“Indy Habitat’s mentor program allows me to make a focused investment in one single homeowner at a time while building a relationship that will last a life time. Being able to walk side by side from application approval until the final home build with the homeowner is very rewarding.”
A Homeowner Mentor is:
A Habitat volunteer who, on behalf of the affiliate, takes on primary functions of support and communication with the future homeowners during the homeowner education and building or rehab process.
- Identify community resources of use to the future homeowner
- Follow up concerning Habitat class materials
- Provide homeownership tips
- Answer any questions about the program
- Meet with the family at least once a month to listen and encourage
The mentor will walk alongside the Habitat homeowner for 1-2 years. You become their main advocate outside of the Habitat for Humanity staff. Review the mentor guidelines for more information.
