Mentoring / Advocating

Hands of Hope Mentors are Christian women from local churches who mentor, love, pray, advocate for and support at-risk youth, the sexually exploited and other young women.

Our role as a "mentor" or "advocate" happens in the following ways: 

1. Showing we care and simply “being there” when a mentee needs someone to listen or talk to as a friend, offering unconditional love and hope.
3. Connecting to professional services, including counseling.
4. Providing support by helping to develop basic life skills, prioritize “to-do” lists, setting goals, attending appointments or hearings, tutoring or homework help, going for a walk, lunch, or simply hanging out.
5. Praying for them.
6. Ultimately leading them to the only One True Healer and Savior -- Jesus!

These are ways the Church can shine Light in the dark world of a young girl who highly at-risk, is a victim of generational exploitation or has been sex trafficked. Being with a mentor gives survivors a sense of security, and they are deeply touched to know someone would care so much without strings attached--which builds trust and gives hope. Whether we meet them once or in a continuous relationship, we've entered their world and hopefully brightened it with the love of Christ.
