Reuniting

Families

Kids Central understands the importance of a family unit. When safely possible, we work to keep families together and strive to bring them back together through case management coordination, and family support services. As a prevention program, Kids Central offers Kinship Care Support for relatives raising relative children to keep them from entering foster care. For children, who cannot safely remain with their families, Kids Central recruits, trains, and licenses foster homes. Adoption services are also provided to find permanent living arrangements for children after judicial involvement.

Protecting

Children
and Families

Child safety is of utmost concern. Through child abuse prevention programming, family support services, and case management coordination, Kids Central puts the safety and well-being of children first. For young adults exiting foster care, Kids Central provides the Independent Living Program to help youth transition from foster care to adulthood safely and with support.
