Mentoring Relationships

Most incidences of homelessness can be directly tied to a breakdown in relationships or a lack of a support system. Our mentoring relationships provide Jubilants with an opportunity to experience a healthy relationship and learn relationship skills. This empowers them to build a support system and decreases the likelihood of an additional episode of homelessness.
