Child in Need: Energetic boy seeks strong male mentor

Here is a child from the Brainerd area who is waiting for a Kinship Partner Mentor.

Tommy is a bright and energetic 9-year-old who loves school and enjoys doing “guy things.” He would describe himself as happy, friendly and fun-loving. The child has been waiting since January of 2010.

Tommy lives with his mother and older sister (who is currently enjoying her Kinship Partner). He sees his dad on Christmas and Spring Break, and during the summer vacation. Tommy would enjoy another male in his life to spend time with and do those “guy things” he loves to do.

Kinship Partners serves families in Crow Wing County, southern Cass County and the Staples/Motley area by providing positive role models to youth from the ages of 5 to 14. We have offices in Brainerd, Pequot Lakes, Crosby, and Staples.
