About the organization
91 Place establishes consistent and healthy relationships with youth experiencing homelessness through stable housing, mental health supports, and workforce development opportunities. We believe that, through redemptive relationships, youth who have experienced homelessness can embody a better future for themselves and their future families.
House Mentors create and maintain an environment of safety, growth, and encouragement for all residents, as well as provide individualized and necessary skills training directly to youth. House Mentors are responsible to implement all processes relating to house management including, but not limited to, cleaning rotations, curfew adherence, maintenance requests, volunteer coordination, inventory management, food and meal coordination, systems subscriptions, and interrelational resident management. The House Mentor will also be responsible for collaborating with a multidisciplinary team of support staff and volunteers including, but not limited to, the therapist, case manager, community mentors, workforce development director, and supervising staff. As a contributing member of this support staff team, House Mentors will facilitate youth access to needed physical, emotional, social, educational, and other services. This includes direct assistance in gaining access to services, coordination of care, oversight of the entire case, and linkage to appropriate services, especially in the areas of follow-up and accountability. House Mentoring does not include direct delivery of medical, clinical, or other direct services. Domestic life-skills training will be planned and executed by the House Mentor as a strategic objective of this role. Skills such as self-care, time management, problem-solving skills and domestic economy are directed toward eliminating barriers.
