Kinship Center's mission is simple, to connect children to safe, permanent families that will be theirs for life. Decades of research have shown that children need stable, permanent homes to thrive, yet each year thousands of children reach age 18 in a succession of temporary homes or institutions without knowing the security and love of a permanent family. This lack of permanency has a profound impact on the community. Many of these young adults will join the ranks of school dropouts, the unemployed, the homeless, and the mentally ill, facing a lifetime of public dependency. With our conviction that thriving families build a thriving community, Kinship Center addresses this problem at its core by finding and training prospective adoptive and relative families and strengthening them with hands-on professional support.
