Welcome to Kinship

Our Mission Statement

Building community through the power of mentoring

Be a Mentor, Be a Friend!  

Do you like to fish, bake? Do you have a passion for playing board games? Maybe swimming at the local community center is more your thing or maybe you are just a great listener who likes to go for walks and do some people watching. Mentoring can incorporate all of those skills and be as simple as getting together with a child twice a month for just a few hours.
