Mission Statement

Kids & Families Together is a not-for-profit support, education and counseling resource center that provides services for individuals and families in foster care, kinship care and adoption, for the preservation of families and the physical, emotional and mental health of children.


Kids & Families Together’s mission is to strengthen relationships by providing safe, supportive help that keep family members emotionally connected to one another. Children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, loss, grief and multiple placements often need extraordinary care, understanding and "attachment-focused" therapeutic interventions. Parents/caregivers need specialized education, support and strategies that will enhance their ability to raise safe, healthy and nurtured children.

Description

Successful parenting takes dedication and hard work. Because it is more likely to happen when parents are supported by a team of family advocates, we are committed to bringing the best of guidance and resources to our foster, kinship, and adoptive families.

In addition to our counseling services, Kids & Families Together offers a supportive resource center where individuals, families and community members can meet and share information and concerns. Foster care, kinship care and adoption are more than legal arrangements; they are life-long processes made in the heart and soul.

Kids & Families Together continually seeks out innovative programs to meet the needs of our community. Some of the services Kids & Families Together offers include:

  • Pre & Post Adoption Counseling
  • Individual, Couple, and Family Therapy
  • Foster Parent Mentoring and Support, Education and Training
  • Clinical Case Management for Foster and Kinship Families
  • Kids & Families Together Newsletter with useful information on local and national resources
