Every potential Kinship mentor and waiting Kinship child has their own story.

Jack had heard about Kinship through a friend, hearing about his involvement and his personal stories spent being a mentor. He was intrigued, his friend sharing about his many adventures, but mostly realizing year after year what a difference his friend was making by simply being a friend to that young boy.

Sean, 8 years old and living with his mom, lacked a man in his life. His family had endured some hardship but was forging through. He secretly dreamed of fishing and playing catch, but most of all someone to let him "hang out with," someone to care and to listen.

Four months ago these two met and the rest is history. Jack gives Sean his time, normally spent at his lake home, and has made him feel a part of the family. Sean gives Jack his smiles and affection; while Jack feels satisfied that he is making a difference in Sean's life.

Are you ready to share what you have and who you are? Begin your own friendship story. There is a child waiting for you.
