All of us have experienced a crisis and can remember the first phone call or visit from a friend or family member that cared. Many families face crisis and no one knows. No one calls when they are hopeless. Kindred Connections walks beside families by providing mentoring relationships for parents and temporary housing for children in times of need. In partnership with local churches, volunteers build connections with vulnerable families and open their homes to children. While their children are safe, parents can address the difficult season of life. Problems such as addiction, domestic abuse, illness, unemployment or homelessness can make it impossible for parents to care for their children. Children are especially at-risk for neglect or abuse as their parents struggle to cope with difficult circumstances and emotions. Kindred Connections keeps children safe and gives families hope.
