History & Vision
Illinois MENTOR was founded in 1989, as a foster care agency. Over the past two decades we have expanded our offerings to include our innovative Host Home program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and a broad range of and In-Home Supports. Today we are proud to support hundreds of individuals throughout the state.
As a partner of The MENTOR Network—a national network of local human service providers operating across the country—Illinois MENTOR is able to leverage its national structure and resources to provide cost-effective solutions to meet a growing and urgent need for home and community-based programs.
