Mentors/Providers, when available, will provide services in a prompt manner. Mentors provide support, guidance and positive role-modeling.

Providers must have a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance, own vehicle to be able to transport clients and must pass a stringent back-ground check. Once a provider is accepted and approved for services, they undergo training, which includes reporting monthly for on-going training and in-services. RRCO has an internal training process which closely monitors the providers. We evaluate the employee’s skills, documentation, reliability and character.

 

Working Hours:

The working hours for providers vary and are determined by case managers, providers and supervisors. Our providers understand that they are on-call to respond to crisis situations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Mentors are available evenings, weekends and on short notice. They are required to have a mobile phone and will provide the number to the client, supports, case managers and probation officers. Mentors will make themselves available to attend transitional meetings as scheduled by the families, case managers and probation officers. Mentors agree to meet with the clients while they are in confinement to build a relationship before he/she is released.
