Mission: The 'r kids Family Center mission is to provide specialized, quality services to children and families in transition. Our objective is to promote permanency, safety and stability for children by providing nurturing services to biological, foster, adoptive and relative care families.
Programs: Working with Department of Children and Families referred clients, 'r kids works with families who have been separated from their children. The goal is to provide intensive support services to allow for permanency either within the birth home, the relative care or adoptive home. Staff provide initially center based supervised visitation and individualized parenting support .Additionally assessment and treatment planning services are provided. The provision of unsupervised and in-home visits occurs for those families who have a plan of reunification. If reunification is not the goal, staff prepairs the families and children for a permanent out-of - home placement. Staff provide children with programming to meet specific individual needs, including referrals and transitional planning and support. Our services are on-going and multi-faceted, singularly geared toward the timely implementation and support of effective permanency plans.

'r kids has vast knowledge and appreciation of diverse cultures. This is very important in dealing with people from various cultures and races. It feels good to be understood and your belief system appreciated and respected. My family was treated with courtesy and professionalism. My case worker, Anne, was very helpful with the adoption of my daughter. Overall my experience with ‘k kids has been a very pleasant one. I will recommend ‘r kids to any and everybody!

I first came to know ‘r kids Family Center after being referred for Parenting Classes after my daughter was removed from my home. I credit 'r kids Family Center and my Social Worker, Steve, for learning new parenting skills to apply to my everyday life with my daughter Mikela. Sometimes she asks me question that are a little tough to answer I often turn to 'r kids for advice on how to handle these types of questions. It was a long journey toward reunifying with my daughter, but the outcome has been worth it. I would like people to know that I cannot thank 'r kids enough for their help. I have become a more nurturing and patient parent. I know Steve and the staff at 'r kids are always there to help me over the little bumps in the road.

I am so very grateful to the people of 'r kids. I adopted my beautiful son through this organization. Everyone there was so extremely helpful throughout the entire adoption process which has been, by far, the most incredible and beautiful experience of my life. The workers at 'r kids were always very kind and warm. They work hard, are very compassionate and clearly care so much about helping others. I give my eternal thanks to the people of 'r kids.

Having my children removed from my care temporarily, was the most frightening experience of my life. Ive heard the saying "blessing in disguise" before, but never truly experienced it quite like this.While it was a dificult situation, it is what brought 'r kids Family Center into the lives of my family and I. And, we are blessed to have had their services in our home! To this very day, we still use advice, resources and information provided by our 'r kids worker and the 'r kids orginization. It is my hope that they will continue to be around for many, many more years to help the countless amounts of families that will also gain such a wonderful experience as we did.
