Peer Mentor Program

The Glory House peer mentor program serves to pair up clients who need an additional support network while they transition into a healthier lifestyle. Some of our current mentors have experience with recovery from drugs and alcohol, life in prison, having family members with addiction issues, or are simply living a faith-based life. The common thread with all our mentors is that they have a desire to help people become better than they were in the past and to build them up to have the courage to move beyond the things that have always held our clients back from being respected members of society.

Client testimonial

“Thank you for setting me up with a peer coach. We met tonight, and he and I hit it off. I want to say thank you for setting me up with him as I believe he will be a positive influence and a useful friend as I get acclimated to life outside of prison, as well as maintain positive change and my sobriety. So again, thank you so much.”
