Kinship Mentoring

Thank you for your support of Kinship Mentoring! 

For 60+ years, Kinship has nurtured relationships that matter!  Recently we highlighted a Kinship match of almost 6 years, on our new quarterly E-news.  Tess and her Kinship Kid Parker were each asked to describe the best attributes about the other.  Tess noted, "He {Parker} has deep love for his family, both immediate and extended, is extremely well-mannered, and is very emotionally intelligent."  Parker replied, "She {Tess} is loving and caring, always asks me questions, and wonders and cares how I'm doing." This and every Kinship mentor match is a win-win: for the Kinship Kid who gains a trusted friend and confidant; for the dedicated mentors who volunteer their time and energy; and for the community which is strengthened through these intentional, positive relationships.

Again, thank you. I invite you to learn more by visiting us at and by following us on social media.
