Fos-ter (v.): support or encourage
Kin-ship (n.): family
A great-aunt takes in six young children after their mother is murdered. Grandparents take in their two teenage grandchildren after their son passed away. An uncle adopts his seven-year-old nephew after his parents had their rights terminated due to drug use and child neglect.
Every day in Nevada, relatives are stepping in to raise vulnerable children, keeping them out of foster care with strangers.
We believe that when kids can't be with their parents, they should stay with their family, AND that family should have the support they need to raise healthy children.
Foster Kinship helps the children by supporting the whole kinship family. We provide free, evidence-based programs including kinship navigation, child and youth interventions, training, respite and advocacy to strengthen kinship caregivers’ capacity to provide safe, stable, and nurturing homes for children.
Foster Kinship helps keep HOME in the FAMILY.
We empower kinship families by equipping them with the information, resources and serivces they need to do the best for their family. Empowered kinship caregivers have increased the capability to ensure short and long-term success for the children in their homes.
A tax-deductible donation to Foster Kinship helps us with our mission: to help those who "keep home in the family" for some of Nevada's most vulnerable children.
