Every year, more than 7,500 Portland-area children transition through foster care and adoption services. The process of fitting into a new home can be emotionally straining on kids, most of whom are under age 6, have a limited support network, and have endured physical or mental abuse, neglect, or trauma. Without the support and outlet counseling provides, many of these children find it difficult to move out of social services and establish healthy relationships with adoptive families.
For more than a decade, Kinship House has nurtured children and families with outpatient mental-health services during the transition through foster care and adoption. After being referred by regional caseworkers and county offices, children experiencing difficulties in their new homes undergo a series of timely counseling and education sessions intended to soften the stress of a rapidly changing home life. With the help of the organization’s expert clinicians, who take a one-on-one, personalized approach to each case, 98% of the children Kinship House serves are able to successfully transition into their new families. More than 280 children and families receive outpatient mental-health services at Kinship House every year, creating lasting familial bonds and future stability.
