Kinship: At a Glance
Kinship of Cumberland & Turtle Lake is a non-denominational and non-profit mentoring program that matches children, ages 5-18, with individuals and families who have the desire to help a child in their community reach their full potential.
Kinship promotes long-term friendships while encouraging low-cost or no-cost activities. Kinship mentors volunteer to spend time with their KinsKid once a week for at least one year. With just an hour a week, mentors can make all the difference in the success of youth in our community. Just one hour a week. That’s about as long as one episode of your favorite TV show.
Children in the Kinship program are voluntarily enrolled by a parent or guardian and live in the Cumberland or Turtle Lake School District.
The majority of the children enrolled in our program come from single-parent homes that are racially and economically diverse.
