The Family Connection

The Family Connection is the newest addition to the Kinship Center programs. In partnership with the Diva Connection we are re-branding and re-vamping the store to provide  seniors and kinship families in need. And don’t worry the community can still come and shop for a $1 per item or give to your heart’s desire per item. Donations of genteelly used or new women, men, baby and teen clothing are always needed. All proceeds are used to replenish the house and body care supplies. Open 9am to 4pm Monday through Thursday.
