The Momentum Program is a curriculum-based life enrichment program intended to help move our HEB neighbors from physical, mental, emotional and spiritual poverty, by providing foundational and fundamental assistance. The program is a six-month commitment that consists of eightone-hour in person connection meetings that cover objectives such as finances, community, healthcare, employment, family life and more.

Each Momentum Program participant will be assigned a mentor who will attend all classes with their mentee here at 6 Stones. Dinner and childcare will be provided for both Mentors and Mentees during each course. Upon the completion of the eight-week classes the mentors will assist the mentees in applying the lessons to their lives with weekly communication and support. With the help of the mentor, 6 Stones resources and partners, the objective is to catapult various areas of the mentees life from poverty to promise.

Developing Economic Mobility

“Together, we are going to launch a mentoring program that will form the building blocks for helping 6 Stones guests achieve economic mobility. Many of the people who come to us for help with food, clothing, school supplies, and other basic needs have been entrapped in generational poverty. Our current programs help to cover their immediate needs so that they can stabilize. Now, with support from Bank of America, we will be able to lead our neighbors into the next chapter of their lives: security that leads to growth. We believe that leveraging our amazing volunteer base to address community-wide issues through personal mentoring will not only empower the families we serve but also build a thriving community: one household at a time.”

– Jennifer Leney, 6 Stones Executive Director

This is a brand new initiative, launched with the support of a Bank of America Neighborhood Builders grant. Volunteer mentors will be paired with our friends who need a little boost in order to facilitate strong relationships that lead to personal growth. Each mentor will serve for a total of a year, guiding and facilitating the growth of a 6 Stones guest who is ready to move into economic independence but lacking key resources to make the jump.
