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 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.

Our family has worked with Kinship Center since we adopted our daughter in 2002. We simply could not have done it without the eye opening pre-adoption training as well as the support we were provided.
Dee W.
Absolutely the most ethical place in the state of California to pursue adoption. Husband and I worked with attorneys, physicians, social workers, etc. before finally finding Kinship Center.
