Kinship Blog

Kinship Partners is a nonprofit youth mentoring organization serving families within Crow Wing county, southern Cass county and Staples/Motley area of Minnesota by providing positive role models to youth in our communities. 


Why is mentoring important?  Our community’s future rests on the hopes and dreams of our children and youth.  Every child deserves a responsible and concerned adult who will provide guidance and support, help set and accomplish goals, and act as a positive role model.

Match of the Month:  

Kinship Partners is pleased to honor Ric Larson and Evan Huddleston, both from Crosby, as its newest Match of the Month. 

In Evan’s own words:  “I had been on Kinship’s waiting list for a very long time. One day my mom said that Kinship had called to say there was a man by the name of Ric that wanted to be my mentor. I was so excited!”

“He’s a really nice man. Ric told me he doesn’t get to see his kids and grandkids as often as he would like, so he wanted a Kinship Partner to have some fun with. “

“We do so many fun things together. We’ve baked cookies, gone out to eat, and we even tried curling. I wish everybody could have a mentor like Ric. I’m glad he picked me.”
