Harbor Hall Men’s and Hope House Ladies Shelter Mentors
A mentor is a person who is going to invest in the resident with more 1-on-1 time. This is accomplished in many ways. One way might be talking over cove-fee or a meal; time with the resident is a key component. Over time they will open up and use the mentor as a person for advice and to pray with about different issues. They usually meet once a week.
Harbor Hall Resident Assistant
A Resident Assistant is a man who provides reminders for the men to keep on schedules at night or on the weekends. He is also investing his life in them by whatever means possible.

Money Management Mentors
You do not need a degree to help someone with their budget. At Love INC we practice the Dave Ramsey program. You need to be able to write up a monthly budget, and make appropriate changes to a budget as the month goes on and income or expenses change.
With over a couple hundred volunteers and even more clients, we are in need of people that have the gift of prayer. We have a prayer box in our lobby for clients to drop prayer requests in. We also have a large family of volunteers. God has blessed us with an abundant amount of people and we would love to share the opporunity with you to pray for them. To be included in our list of people who are willing to pray, all you need is an e-mail address. Diana will forward prayer requests from our prayer box or as they are received from individuals. If you do not have an e-mail address, you can always stop in and check the prayer box. If you are a person that enjoys blessing people with your prayers, we want you to be a Prayer Warrior for Love INC.
