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 see some of you are saing that this center is so good but if you only know how some of the worker like to lie about some of the partants you would porbly not say it. I know of a mother who had two children taken away from her and the worker told her she was doing a good job with her visits,and then when they went to court the worker told the judge that she was not fit to have her children. Then when the judge said it would be an open adpotin and that the mother could still talk to the children and the adpoted parents but she needed to wait a coulpe days so things could get in order the mother agree. Then she called the worker she wouldnt late know anything even if the children where all right or not. Still to this day the mother trys to find out something and still is told the can not tell her anything. Now do you thank is right. I know I do not thank so.
