YOUNG PEOPLE NEED SUPPORT.  

KINSHIP PROVIDES IT THROUGH VITAL YOUTH MENTORING RELATIONSHIPS.

Now, more than ever, young people need to be supported. The past two years have been full of instability and change as our world has reacted and responded to a global health pandemic. Kinship is working alongside a team of mentors who are proving themselves to be a dependable, stable and consistent support for the youth we serve. The needs are high and continue to rise. Currently there are 20 youth waiting for a caring and committed mentor. Your financial support will enable the Kinship program to continue to provide mentoring support, stability, and security to the youth in Polk County. Together we stand strong in 2022!











MISSION STATEMENT: 

Kinship of Polk County works to improve the quality of a child's life by establishing a relationship with a caring volunteer for the purpose of promoting stability, support, friendship and community. 


Children need support and guidance from caring adults to assist them in the work of growing into productive, responsible adults. Kinship mentors offer youth healthy and meaningful relationships. This positive support helps to prevent youth from turning toward risky, unhealthy behavior for identification and recreational purposes.

Research confirms that regular, long-standing relationship with adults are critical to healthy child development. Children who regularly have positive interactions with adults are more likely to regulate behavior, respond to adversity and to thrive.

2021 STATISTICS:  Kinship served 298 youth in community-based and school-based mentoring combined. Recruiting high-quality mentors who will contribute to increased resiliency and provide the building blocks necessary for health and well-being is a constant and timely process. Kinship relies on the generosity of the community to provide the funds necessary to support our work.  

"Every child who winds up doing well has had at least one stable and 

committed relationship with a supportive adult."

- The Center on the Developing Child
