Budget Mentor Needed



Community Lodgings is an Alexandria, VA-based nonprofit organization with a mission to lift families from homelessness and instability to independence and self-sufficiency. Our Transitional Housing Program provides transitional housing to homeless families in the City of Alexandria. The program provides opportunities for motivated residents to obtain the necessary skills, income, resources and services that will enable them to find permanent housing and to the best of their abilities, achieve the highest levels of self-sufficiency. 



To supplement the efforts of current staff, we are seeking budget mentor volunteers to assist transitional housing residents with their monthly budgeting needs and provide additional financial guidance that will help the resident reach stability.

Budget mentors work with their assigned clients for the duration of the client’s stay in the Transitional Housing Program which could be up to two years. Budget mentors work with our clients’ schedules so hours may vary; however, the average budget mentor meets with their client(s) at least once per month in the evenings (after 5pm).
