Non-profit Spotlight: Kinship House
By BRG Staff
Kinship House is a non-profit that was founded in 1996 and provides outpatient mental health services to foster and adopted children and their families. We specialize in championing children and families with target interventions during all stages of foster care, reunification, and adoption. In over twenty years of providing mental health services, we have served thousands of local children on their journey to the care only a permanent and healthy family can provide. With almost 3,000 children in foster care annually in the tri-county area, our services support children as they find their forever home. Our mission is to champion the successful permanency of each child who comes to our door. We understand that each individual’s unique history, culture, and needs must be considered as they journey to stable, healthy homes.
Kinship House addresses the missing pieces in services provided to children touched by foster care and adoption. In addition to therapeutic services to address significant mental health concerns, we help children move beyond the trauma caused by their experience in the necessary but difficult foster care system. Our work helps minimize transitions and increases the chances of children settling into a stable, healthy and permanent home. We engage the family in therapy and offer a variety of therapy: drama, play, art, movement, and talk.
