Narrative

In our Host Home program—known to some in Massachusetts as Shared Living—individuals live in private family homes with dedicated caregivers who we call Mentors.  We use the term “Mentor” because the people who open their homes to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities become so much more than just care providers.  They are advocates, teachers, friends, and family.

Massachusetts MENTOR is a partner of The MENTOR Network. Founded in 1980 in Boston, MA, The MENTOR Network is a leading national provider of home and community-based services to At-Risk Youth, adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities and individuals with brain injuries. The MENTOR Network offers an array of community-based residential and non-residential services that range in intensity, duration and frequency depending on the needs of the client. The organization’s core treatment foster care model (The MENTOR Model) is based on a one-to-one placement of a client in the home of a trained paraprofessional called a “Mentor.” Other service and support options include adoption assistance, educational services, in-home support, day programming, employment services, small group care and supported living.
