Kenneth, Age 16

Kenneth is an outgoing and talkative young man. He loves playing video games and hanging out at the library. He has a great sense of humor and enjoys laughing. Kenneth does very well in school and is very proud of his hard work! He is interested in having all kinds of pets, including dogs, reptiles and all kinds of critters!

Kenneth would love a family who shares interests with him. A perfect night out would be going for a drive, going for a walk, getting something to eat and hanging out. Kenneth is looking forward to being adopted and is wondering why it is taking so long. He is ready to be part of a forever family!

Become A Mentor To A Local Foster Youth

Ordinary things like forming safe and lasting relationships, problem-solving, goal setting, applying for college, and setting boundaries can be a great challenge for foster youth.

A caring and well-trained mentor can inspire and guide a foster youth ages 12-17, or a former foster youth ages 18-21, to pursue a productive future and reach his or her full potential. Mentor One Who Needs Someone.
