Foster Kinship.

About

When children can’t be with their parents, they should be with their family. Foster Kinship was established as a 501(c)(3) organization in 2011 by Alison Caliendo. As a foster/adoptive parent, she has the desire to help the 31,000 children living with relative caregivers, also known as kinship care. Foster Kinship was founded with a mission to “strengthen the kinship caregivers’ capacity to provide safe, permanent, and nurturing homes for children.”

Nationally recognized, Foster Kinship is the only non-profit organization in Nevada exclusively serving kinship children and families. Since its inception, Foster Kinship has proudly served over 3,275 children and 2,045 kinship families across Southern Nevada. 

Foster Kinship provides free programs for kinship caregivers: Kinship Navigator Services and Child Welfare Training.

Foster Kinship also advocates for all kinship families to receive access to services and improved caregiving options through training, partnerships and thoughtful leadership.

By helping to “keep home in the family” for these vulnerable children, Foster Kinship envisions a safe and healthy childhood for ALL children in kinship care.
