The Nest Project

The NEST project is designed to create a network of support for families struggling with child management issues either due to a parent or child’s mental health, family trauma, or other stressful circumstances that make parenting difficult. We match a qualified volunteer parent mentor with a family.

What a Nest Mentor Volunteer Can Do:

  • Provide emotional support when things are challenging or tense
  • Help out with rides and childcare to support family goals
  • Offer culturally-sensitive support for all families
  • Build strength in parents and children
  • Enhance a child’s development and social skills
  • Communicate with family weekly 1 to 5 hours per week
  • Once a trained mentor, you will work with a family 1 to 3 years
