There is a child in our community who needs your friendship.


Angie is bright, sweet and 10 years old. Her nickname is “peanut” and she loves to read. Her favorite books are the Magic Treehouse series. This young lady loves cookies and Key Lime pie and would like someone to teach her how to make them.

She also has an adventurous side and loves the outdoors, but doesn’t have a lot of opportunities to explore this part of herself.

Would you like to spend time with a girl who loves to bake and play soccer, but would also like to learn to sew and ride a horse, and who hopes to go camping and maybe even go hang-gliding?

Put a little sweet in your summer. Consider being Angie’s, Kinship Mentor.



We have all heard the adage “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” and for 7-year-old Tate, there may be some truth to that! When asked his idea of a perfect day Tate responds “get dressed, watch tv, go to the waterpark and have pancakes and tator tot  hot dish!”

Tate is a sweet and happy go lucky boy who is interested climbing trees and swinging outside, having picnics and watching movies. He someday dreams of becoming a “cop” and plans to use a motorcycle and police car in pursuit of the bad guys.

Do you have room in your heart for this sweet and lovable boy? If so, get some tator tots and contact Kinship Partners!
