What is a parent mentor?

A Family Connections Program parent mentor is a parent who has experienced the child welfare system first hand. The parent’s lived experience and program training help them support parents whose child(ren) has/have been placed in out-of-home care by child welfare, and who want to connect with their child’s/children’s caregiver to help support their child(ren).
