Help these Pequot Lakes, Pine River-Backus girls in need


Kinship Partners usually has many more boys than girls waiting for mentors.

All of our offices combined have 21 boys on the waiting list and nearly that many girls, with 17 ready to be matched. It is unusual that in the Lakes Office, serving the Pequot Lakes and Pine River-Backus school districts, six of the nine children waiting for mentors are girls.
