Mission: 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.

I have had the privilege of working closely with the management staff of Kinship Center for the last year and I am continually impressed with all of them. Caring, bright, thoughtful and passionate about their work, these professionals set the highest standards of excellence and meet them!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

both northern and southern California

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand their ability to help many more clients
