The MENTOR Network’s mission is to offer adults, children, and their families innovative, quality services and supports that lead to growth and independence, regardless of the physical, intellectual or behavioral challenges they face. Our philosophy emphasizes partnerships—with those we serve, their families, our employees, Mentors, payors and the communities in which we work—in an effort to help individuals shape the direction of their own lives in community-based settings.
The MENTOR Network is a national network of local health and human services providers in more than 30 states offering an array of quality, community-based services to adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain and spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries and illnesses. Founded in 1980, The Network has made a positive impact in the lives of thousands of children and adults across the country. We create innovative programs and implement systems—from our national continuous quality improvement program to our outcomes measurement tools—that enable us to deliver quality services and supports to the people we serve.
