Our kids, our hearts, it’s how we champion the future!
Every year, more than 3,000 Portland-area children transition through foster care and adoption services. The process of fitting into a new home is emotionally straining on kids, who have a limited support network, and have endured physical or mental abuse, neglect, or trauma. Without the support and outlet therapy provides, many of these children find it difficult to move out of social services and establish healthy relationships.
Since 1996, Kinship House has nurtured children and families with outpatient mental-health services during the transition through foster care and adoption.
With the help of the organization’s expert clinicians, who take a one-on-one, personalized approach to each case, 98% of the children Kinship House serves are able to successfully transition out of state care. More than 450 children and families received outpatient mental-health services at Kinship House in 2013, creating lasting familial bonds and future stability.”
Help the Kinship kids by providing your financial support today. You can make a one-time donation, or a sustaining donation, to ensure that no child is turned away. Thank you for your support.
ABOUT KINSHIP HOUSE
At Kinship House, we address the missing piece in services provided to most children touched by foster care and adoption. In addition to significant mental health concerns, these children have been traumatized by a necessary but difficult system. They need to explore the circumstances of their past to prepare for a successful future.
Our work helps minimize transitions and increases the chances of children settling into a stable, healthy and permanent home.
Kinship House outpatient child and family services combine ongoing consultation, therapy and education.
In addition to treating each child’s mental health issues, we help families develop secure attachments. We know secure attachments to caring adults will help stabilize the child’s mental health. We provide family therapy and consultation to help parents develop the skills to support their child’s unique needs
