CHILD IN NEED: Boy would benefit from everyday activities


Boy wold benefit from everyday activities

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

Eli is a 9 year old who likes just about anything and looks forward to a chance at spending time with and learning to care for animals. He enjoys and excels in school. He describes himself as smart, friendly, active and fun-loving.

Eli knows about Kinship because he has siblings that have had mentors. He would greatly benefit from a mentor who would include him in some everyday activities.

Eli has only been in the Kinship Program for a few months but every day he waits in anticipation of the phone call saying we have found you a mentor.

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.

For more information about Eli or any of the kids on our waiting list, call 218-829-4606, or toll free at 877-730-5437 or visit our website at
