The MENTOR Network is one of shared values and resources.  We are an organization offering those who work with us and those we serve the benefits of a strong national structure.  Tying The Network together is a well-defined set of policies, procedures and quality standards that create a level of support and consistency unavailable elsewhere.  Learn more about the breadth and depth of our services while you meet the extraordinary people who receive and deliver them in our cross-country video journey "The Community is our Witness."

Experience, Strength and Stability

Our strategy of marrying our mission and values with business discipline and capital creation is unique.  The resources of The MENTOR Network enable the organization to invest in systems that make excellence possible—and we apply those systems in a way that directly benefits people with a range of needs, with impressive results. 

From accounting and financial reporting capabilities to cutting-edge clinical systems, The Network offers human services professionals the expertise they need to keep their focus on delivering the highest quality care.  And with financial stability and access to capital, we are able to offer new services to a greater number of people—often in places no one else is able to go.

The Network’s depth and breadth also creates advantages for our workforce, including comprehensive benefits and a career ladder rare in human services.  There is no stopping a passionate direct support employee from developing the skills he or she needs to move up the ranks of program management and beyond—and they can travel around the country doing it.

Since its founding in 1980, The MENTOR Network has never wavered from its goals of “Building Relationships.  Enhancing Lives.”

undefinedFrom Direct Care staff, to behavioral and mental health specialists, to expert clinicians, and corporate professionals, the people who work within The MENTOR Network have a multi-faceted environment in which to perform, grow and succeed.  Whether you are a social worker, computer programmer, speech therapist, financial analyst or other professional who shares our mission, see how rewarding it can be to become part of our network of caring and search jobs today!

    I have been working at The MENTOR Network full-time (More than 5 years)


    My coworkers are the best. They are devoted to what they do and are a pleasure to work with. You may join the company for its mission as I initially did, but you stay because of the people. I have a ton of flexibility which supports my work/life balance better than any other job I've had. Creativity and collaboration are encouraged. I've worked in Corporate for 5 years now and have learned and grown so much more than I could have ever imagined. I'm sure I'll still be here in 5 years (by choice!) reflecting on my 10 years with the company.


    Due to the multi-dimensionality of the organization, it can be tricky to find a "one size fits all" solution for certain issues, as there are always exceptions to the rule.

    Average Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at The MENTOR Network.


    The process was easier when going to a job fair. They link you up with house managers who are hiring and that is close to your location. If you are hired they tell you on the spot. The hiring process takes long, as you need to wait around a month to get your background checked and to have an orientation date.
