Welcome to Kinnect
Our mission is to build and strengthen kinship connections and inclusive support networks for children, young people, and families.
Kinnect is an Ohio-based nonprofit that seeks to transform the child welfare system by leveraging its expertise to design programs, products, and services. As a leader in creating, implementing, and evaluating transformational programs and services, Kinnect works to prevent entry into the child welfare system and reduce the time children spend in it.
The power of kinship
The Kinnect Approach places kinship at the heart of the effort to help children in need find their permanent family. Foster care should be short-term and temporary. By partnering with other members of a child’s extended family, we can minimize disruption and help the family thrive.
