Lakes Area Kinship- A Program of Lakes Crisis and Resource Center
“Every kid is just one caring adult away from being a success story.”
Our goal is to improve children’s lives by establishing quality relationships between children and caring volunteers for the purpose of promoting stability, support, friendship, and community. We do this through mentoring relationships. Mentors share a few hours a month for at least one year with their Kinship kid. They can go fishing, sew, work on a puzzle, go to a movie, bake cookies, or go for a walk. The possibilities are endless. The activities themselves are not as important as shared time and relationships that are built.
Join in on the fun and become a mentor today! The life you change might just be your own!

Lakes Area Kinship Mentors
Event Chair: Stephanie Baker
Change two lives and become a youth mentor! Hang out with an area kid that you are specially matched with. Do fun stuff together, go for a walk, attend Kinship sponsored events, go fishing, go to the park, or just have a chat. The possibilities are endless! The longer you are matched with a child the stronger your bond will grow! We request that mentors are willing to spend time with their mentee at least twice a month for a year. Of course, you are welcome to do more and several mentors regularly meet once a week with their child and have been matched well over a year. We always have a need for both male and female mentors. Your Kinship time will be flexible and will work according to your schedule and the mentee’s schedule.
