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


Lizzie is a 13 year old from Brainerd who loves school, especially science. She enjoys going to the beach, taking bike rides and doing arts and crafts.

When Lizzie grows up she wants to work with kids and horses and take care of the elderly. Wouldn’t you like to get to know this special little girl?

Kinship Partners mentors are not meant as a replacement for anything missing in a child’s life, but are an addition meant to help guide our kids through their youth and help them realize just how very special they are. In this process, our mentors quickly realize that mentoring is a gift to them and their families as well.


First grade is a big year for kids; they learn so many important things. Chris likes to work hard with reading and numbers, because he gets rewards. What 6 year old wouldn’t?

When Chris is not in school he likes to goof around outside, watch movies and play board games. He hopes to be a rapper when he grows up and has a secret nickname for that occasion.

What makes Chris happy? Birthdays and Christmas of course!

Please consider being the one to help “build up” this sweet little guy, you won’t regret it! Mentor Chris today!
