The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Kinship is a mentoring program where we match individuals, couples and families to children who need additional adult support in their lives. Most of our families are low income families voluntarily asking for mentors for their children. Many of the families do not speak English as their first language. Having a mentor is a wonderful gift but having one who speaks Spanish is a gift for the whole family. If you enjoy kids and would consider mentoring a boy or girl from a Spanish speaking family please give me a call. We have families throughout the metro and you will be matched to a child near you.
