It is a time in history where we are being asked to volunteer to help others. How are we doing? Each of us may think there really isn't anything I can do; there isn't enough time; it doesn't fit into my schedule; and so on and so on.
Being an adult partner at Kinship Partners is not complicated, hours are flexible and things are simple. It is one on one with a child that needs companionship. It is doing things you do everyday and sharing these activities and time with a child.
Help put a smile on a child's face. Kyle and his family have moved from the cities to the Merrifield area. Kyle had been on the "child waiting" list in the cities for more than a year, now he is on the waiting list in Brainerd. He is a 6th grader at Washington Middle School and loves outdoor activities.

He lives with his brother and grandmother. His brother has been diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety and depression. Kyle needs an adult male that will spend individual time with him making him feel special.
He does well in school and tends to make friends quickly.
He has been physically abused and is currently being helped by counseling. He very seldom sees his mother and dad spends little time with him.
What better place to volunteer than giving time to this child? It is amazing the smiles on these children's faces when they finally are matched with an adult partner.
Kyle needs to come off our "child waiting" list. Please, please call Kinship Partners and help Kyle.
