Our Shelter Mentorship Program is a multi-tiered program, constituting a committed relationship between a Mentee and the Institute. Our shared goal is the launch of a sustainable and credible shelter program in its location, that responds to the unique demographic, cultural, and victimization factors for that area.

Mentee plaques with these badges signify completion of our Tier 1 and Tier 2 Intensive training programs.

Shelter Mentorship Program Mentees

Our National Reach

The Institute for Shelter Care trains and equips start-up shelter programs in strategic locations across the United States. First we focus on establishing a solid foundation of leadership, governance and resource stewardship. Then we build on that foundation with subject matter expertise about this service population, therapeutic interventions and the spiritual support to help them persevere. Mentees also benefit from our extensive network of adjunct faculty, drawn from industry experts and shelter leaders across the nation.
