Building A Better Community One Child At A Time.

LAMP-Kinship has moved to a NEW location at the

Litchfield United Methodist Church!


1000 S Sibley Ave, Litchfield, MN 55355

What does                 LAMP-Kinship do?

LAMP-Kinship matches caring adult mentors, with youth between the ages of 5-17, who have common interests and hobbies.  Our mentors can be individuals, couples, or families.  Through the mentoring relationship, we provide support, friendship, and guidance. LAMP-Kinship provides important developmental relationships in young people's lives, provides opportunities, and expands support systems.   


Children with Mentors are:

53% less likely to skip school

46% less likely to start using drugs

27% less likely to start drinking

33% less likely to engage in school violence, and are improving relationships and academic performance.
