About

"

The emotional well-being of young children is directly tied to the functioning of their caregivers and the families in which they live.

Vision:

Giving children from hard places the best chance of healing.

Mission:

Connecting and Empowering Kinship Caregivers

We support kinship families in order to give their children the best chance of healing. We believe that kinship caregivers must also care for themselves in order to provide stable and nurturing homes for the children in their care.

Values:

We believe that children will have the best possible environment for their physical and emotional growth if kinship caregivers are supported through training, resources, and community. We want kids from hard places to experience the best possible outcomes.

We believe investing in Kinship Caregivers is the biggest source of hope for keeping their children out of the homes of strangers in foster care.

Goal:

Helping each Kinship Caregiver to create a healing and nurturing home for their family.

"

It is vital that we find ways to help those who raise grandchildren who would otherwise end up in a system that is already overloaded and underfunded.
