Samuel’s Story

Both of Samuel’s parents were drug users, and the 7-year-old was frequently left on his own. He rarely attended school and was suffering from malnutrition when he was removed from the home and placed with a Kinship Center emergency foster care family, where he receives the physical and emotional help he needs. Until the parents are able to demonstrate that they can provide for Samuel, he will remain in foster care, where Kinship Center professionals are working with the school to design an individual education plan to help Samuel catch up with his class and make friends.

 

 

     
 

Brooke’s Story

Brooke was abandoned by her birth parents when she was born with a rare genetic condition that would typically require permanent hospitalization. Through Kinship Center’s STAR™ program, which advocates and finds placements for children with serious medical issues, a very special foster family was found for Brooke. The parents worked with Kinship Center professionals and a health care team so that however long her life is, Brooke is able to spend it at home in the arms of a loving family rather than in an institution.
