Kinship is a mentoring program where we serve kids ages 5-15 from single parent homes or homes with some ongoing issues that these parents have voluntarily asked for positive role models to spend time with their child. Many of our kids might have learning disabilities, mild autism, extreme shyness, be lacking in social skills, struggle with depression, or behavior issues and sure could use the support of another adult friend in their lives to guide them along. If you have the heart to add a child to your life once a week please call Penny at 763-862-6755.
