Community Partners

Our Community Partners are change agents within human services. They are 501c3 organizations that are either delivering innovative care or developing new ideas and models for doing so. They also mirror The Network itself: creative, effective and focused on the highest quality standards. Our partners are results-oriented, leveraging resources and knowledge to positively impact individuals and communities and to transform society’s vision of and approach to its most vulnerable members.

The MENTOR Network is a national network of local health and human services providers in 36 states offering an array of quality, community-based services to adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain and spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries and illnesses; to youth with emotional, behavioral and medically complex challenges, as well as their families; and to elders in need of support. In order to qualify for support from The Network’s Foundation, an organization must benefit the same populations the company serves.

Since its inception in 2007, more than 238 Community Partner grants have been awarded to organizations in 26 states.

Due to the unprecedented number of applications received in Q1 and Q2 of FY18, we are no longer accepting unsolicited applications for Community Partner grants this fiscal year (September 1, 2017-September 30, 2018).  We will begin accepting applications again on October 1, 2018. Please check this website in September for information regarding an updated process for submitting a grant request.
