COACH is a community strengthening program that aims to empower disadvantaged families and build resilience in individuals through one-to-one mentoring. COACH stands for Creating Opportunities And Casting Hope.
A COACH mentor is a friend with purpose, offering practical help and mentoring towards life goals. These goals include education, employment, training, improved mental health, reduction in addictive habits, financial management, housing, family cohesion, decrease in social isolation, and improved physical and emotional wellbeing. Mentoring is a way to bring out the best in people and help them make use of their own resources. It also promotes individual responsibility and builds community cohesion.
Our vision is to see people in tough places flourish through one to one mentoring. We believe God cares deeply for the marginalized in society and our mission is to join in with Him to help people flourish emotionally, socially, economically and spiritually.
If you would like to be involved in the COACH program through becoming a mentor, or know of a family who may benefit from being mentored, please get in touch with us!
