Missouri Chapter

Greetings, Blue Star Families of Missouri!

Hello, Missouri! My name is Tosombra Kimes, but I go by “Tai” because I love to tie people together—to their community, resources, places, and to other people.

I grew up an Army brat with five siblings, and I’m a mother to two quick-witted kids. I’m also a disabled military veteran, military spouse, and an unpaid caregiver to my retired Army veteran.

Ultimately, I believe happy people glow brighter, and connected people flourish courageously. So be sure that you stay connected.

Send me an email or follow our Facebook page to do exactly that.

Tosombra “Tai” Kimes
