We believe that 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 to help the 33,000 children in Nevada 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. Foster Kinship is the only organization in Nevada exclusively serving kinship children and families. Since its inception, Foster Kinship has proudly served thousands of kinship families across Nevada.
Foster Kinship provides two free programs for kinship caregivers: Kinship Navigator Services and Child Welfare Training. Foster Kinship also advocates for all kinship families to receive equitable access to services.
By helping to “keep home in the family” for vulnerable children, Foster Kinship envisions a safe and healthy childhood for ALL children in kinship care.
