Why Us

More than 50,000 children in California are waiting for a safe home and a loving family that will be there for life. Kinship Center builds adoptive and other families where children can heal from past abuse or neglect and grow to healthy adulthood. We help 2,500 children each year, mostly those whom many others consider too difficult: severely traumatized children, older teenagers, children with disabilities, large sibling groups, and drug affected infants. Every child deserves a family, and Kinship Center makes it happen. We invite you to explore our website or call 1-800-454-6744.  read more....


Upcoming Events!

The Monterey County Regional Fire District will hold its annual Toy Drive benefiting children in Kinship Center programs.  New, unwrapped toys are being collected at Monterey Fire District stations from Fri., Nov. 27 through Thur. Dec. 25.



The staff at Kinship Center are so friendly and are always doing their tasks for the best interest of the children. If you are interested in adoption or foster care care please contact the agency. I would recommend anyone to this agency.
