11. COMMISSIONER COMMENTS AND STAFF INFORMATIONAL REPORTS
Kinship Center Permit Application-Correspondence
Commissionaires: As long-term supporter of Kinship Center I can attest that their foster care programs are second to none. We are fortunate to have this non-profit working in our communities helping the less fortunate children who lack the security of a home life and the parental guidance. Kinships foster care program fills that gap. I strong support and urge to approve their permit application in Marina, CA.
