Kids 'n Kinship

Kids ‘n Kinship provides friendships and positive role models to children and youth ages 5 to16 who are in need of an additional supportive relationship with an adult. Through their Kinship relationship, children develop a sense of self-worth that is essential for success in school, in relationships, and eventually on the job. Kids ‘n Kinship serves children in the communities of Apple Valley, Burnsville, Eagan, Farmington, Lakeville and Rosemount and also provides school-based mentoring at four elementary schools and one middle school. We also provide Pen Pals for the youth on our waiting list.
