The MENTOR Network is a national network of local health and human services providers in 35 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, and to youth with emotional, behavioral and medically complex challenges, as well as their families; and to elders in need of support. 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.Our continuum of home and community-based services make a difference in the lives of many people, including:
Youth and Families at Risk
Youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Youth with Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
Adults with Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
Elders in Need of Support
For youth and families at risk we offer family preservation services designed to help keep families together and therapeutic foster care and foster care for medically complex children when it isn’t possible for a biological family to remain intact. We also offer a range of specialized school-based and non-residential programs for young people, including day treatment and our specialized school for young men in the Maryland public schools.
