Why Us

More than 50,000 children in California are waiting for a safe home and a loving family that will be there for life. Kinship Center builds adoptive and other families where children can heal from past abuse or neglect and grow to healthy adulthood. We help 2,500 children each year, mostly those whom many others consider too difficult: severely traumatized children, older teenagers, children with disabilities, large sibling groups, and drug affected infants. Every child deserves a family, and Kinship Center makes it happen. We invite you to explore our website or call 1-800-454-6744.  read more....

Kinship Center really understands families. The staff are just like our extended family. We had the opportunity to receive their love and support through three foster care situations.

Kinship Center truly has the most dedicated staff I have ever known. The wonderful social workers and all the professionals there treat you as if you are their family. We have been blessed to work with them for almost nine years.

My husband and I have worked with Kinship Center since 2005. We successfully adopted our son in 2006 and have had a baby girl placed with us recently. Our experience has been wonderful, all of the social workers have been so dedicated and caring.
