We have had an amazing year of growth at M.E.N.T.O.R.S., Inc.; we now provide food, housing, education and employment aid, and many other necessary services for hundreds of clients in the South LA community. Our hope is to expand support and funding for our reentry work program, which has helped over 30 returning community members overcome the variety of barriers faced upon release from incarceration. This is a lofty goal, and difficult work, but we believe that we can succeed with your help.

Writing Works Workshop
Housing Works is currently holding a Writing Workshop for formerly incarcerated individuals who have lived experience of homelessness, addiction, and recovery. Participants in the Workshop will meet for 2 hours once each week for up to 8 weeks, via a Zoom meeting. Upon completion of the program, all participants will receive a Gift Card and Certificate of Completion.
Participants will benefit from Writing Works in many ways:
- they will increase their emotional intelligence and ability to express emotions with certitude
- they will improve their critical thinking and analysis skills
- they will gain an understanding of the group process, rules, and etiquette which are all skills that can be employed in group living or workplace environments
- they will connect their newfound writing/performing voice to positive life choices
