Every child has family. Finding and supporting them changes everything.

Kinnect is an Ohio-based nonprofit dedicated to ensuring permanent families for all children in the shortest time possible and connecting those families with individualized support to meet their unique needs. We do this through a two-pronged approach. Kinnect to Family programs focus on urgent family search and engagement to identify affirming caregivers for young people and put youth at the center of achieving permanent family. OhioKAN programs focus on connecting those families and youth with services and resources to meet their needs.
