About Kinship Center:   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, neglect or abandonment 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 to learn about our statewide programs.

“Absolutely the most ethical place in the state of California to pursue adoption. My husband and I worked with attorneys, physicians, social workers, etc. before finally finding Kinship Center.     --Laurie
