Foster Kinship

EDITOR’S NOTE: Each week, we feature intergenerational program ideas that were tried and successful. This series is a tool to highlight various age-optimized programs and practices. The program descriptions are provided by representatives of the programs. Inclusion in this series does not imply Generations United’s endorsement or recommendation, but rather encourages ideas to inspire other programs.

This week’s cool idea is Foster Kinship, a nonprofit that empowers kinship caregivers to provide the most stable and permanent placements for children in their home. 

When children can’t be with their parents, they should be with their family.

Foster Kinship is a local nonprofit exclusively focused on serving kinship families and the over 19,000 children in kinship care in Nevada. 

To improve outcomes for children in kinship care, Foster Kinship empowers kinship caregivers to provide the safest, most stable and permanent placements for the children in their home.

Foster Kinship provides three free programs for kinship caregivers: support, advocacy and case management.

By helping to “keep home in the family” for these vulnerable children, Foster Kinship envisions a safe and healthy childhood for all children in kinship care.

Got something cool you tried that was successful? Why not tweet your cool intergenerational ideas to #cooligideas? You can also post them to our Intergenerational Connections Facebook Group. We want to highlight innovative age-optimized programs and practices through our blog, social media and weekly e-newsletter! Share the inspiration.
