Ohio MENTOR is a partner of The MENTOR Network.  In our Therapeutic Foster Care program, we match youth of all ages with dedicated foster parents, who we call “Mentor.”  We call our foster parents Mentors because they do so much more than provide homes to children and adolescents in need—they help them grow and learn, forever changing their lives. With the help of our expert staff, Mentors provide individualized treatment and support to help children with complex emotional or behavioral challenges succeed—wherever their life journeys take them.

Founded in 1980, The MENTOR Network is a national network of local human services providers offering an array of quality, community-based services in 36 states to adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain and spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries and illnesses, and to youth with emotional, behavioral and medically complex challenges as well as their families.
