My faith in Kinship Partners is always renewed when I think about our adult volunteers who offer their time to help out a child in need.
They are ordinary people who give their love and kindness to a child who really needs them. The rewards of a successful partnership with a child is their "payment."
However, it seems as if we are always in need of more adult volunteers and always getting referrals for children to be in our program. If you have been thinking about volunteering some of your time and you love children, Kinship Partners may be just the place for you!
Let me tell you about a couple of kids in our program who are waiting for partners.
Brent and Chad are brothers who live in Pequot Lakes. Brent is 9 and Chad is 8. One of Brent's main interests is building things and he would love to try waterskiing. Chad wants a partner to do guy things with and to help him to learn to read better. They are really sweet boys who just need a positive male adult role model in their lives.
If you would like to learn more about Brent and Chad or any of the other children on our waiting list, please call one of our area offices. In Brainerd, call 829-4606, in Cuyuna Country call 546-7308 and in Lake Country call 568-4015.
Brent and Chad are looking forward to being matched with that special adult so please, call now!
