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.

“There are no words to describe how wonderful this agency was/is to us. It's amazing to work with people who "get" your kids.”
