Help Families Find Their Footing

As a key part of its Sustainable Families Program, Birch Community Services seeks to equip a cadre of knowledgeable, competent and caring mentors to facilitate the success of BCS program participants in achieving their personal goals of self-sufficiency. BCS staff will recruit, train and support volunteer mentors so they can in turn encourage and support BCS participants with whom they work.

BCS Mentors:

  • Have experience in financial planning, financial analysis or financial counseling (banker, accountant, insurance, CPA, CFP, business owner, budget manager, etc.)
  • Attend the BCS Mentor Training Class to acclimate to our financial framework
  • Are in agreement with BCS financial values:
    • Working toward prudent personal financial management
    • Establishing an emergency account before paying off debt
    • Utilizing savings from BCS to proactively pursue financial goals
    • Sensitive to Judeo-Christian principles of stewardship
  • Meet at least once a month for one hour per family (if necessary)
  • Commit to serving as a BCS Mentor for one year (renewable)
