About Mentor a Survivor

RAHAMA, or Resources And Help Against Marital Abuse, is looking for socially conscious and culturally competent individuals to act as mentors to our clients. Our clients are survivors of domestic violence that belong to the immigrant and refugee communities. RAHAMA is looking for individuals to serve as an additional resource and who can provide our survivors with one-on-one support as they rebuild their lives. Support services include (but are not limited to) teaching mentees how to use the public transport system, how to open a bank account and create a budget, where to find emergency services, and an occasional medical appointment accompaniment.



Responsibilities include:

Meet at least once per week at a safe and convenient space for both mentor and mentee
Check-ins via phone/text
Supportive listening
Additional responsibilities will be on a individual basis and may include transportation and shopping assistance along with some accompaniment to medical appointments.


Qualifications

Transportation required
Bilingual English/Arabic or English/Farsi preferred
