Who We Are
M.E.N.T.O.R.S., Inc. is a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit that specializes in providing exemplary reentry housing and supportive services. Since our formation as a small prison vanpool program in 2016, we have grown to serve hundreds of Los Angeles’s most disadvantaged community members. In the past year alone we’ve opened two 40-bed temporary housing sites as well as a M.E.N.T.O.R.S. Community Center in South LA, and we’re just getting started.
M.E.N.T.O.R.S., Inc. works to enhance the dignity and quality of life for justice-impacted individuals and families by strengthening communities of color, eliminating barriers to opportunities, and helping those in need reach their full potential through solidarity, learning, and the power of work.

What We Do
Reentry Services & Housing
We specialize in reentry services and care. Since opening our first interim housing facility in October 2019, over 50 of our clients have secured permanent housing, and 25 have secured employment through our housing assistance and employment programs.
Prison Outreach Services
One of our first offered services, facilitated by M.E.N.T.O.R.S. since 2016, is a prison outreach program, wherein families of incarcerated individuals may sign up to visit their loved ones in prison or jail and use our transport vans for low-cost travel.
Family Services & Community Center
We are proud to offer a variety of services and programs at our new Community Center in South LA. The Center is designed to be an all-in-one drop-in resource center. The Center features a computer lab and game room for kids, a dance room, a kitchen, a communal backyard area, a gym, and a music studio.
