Welcome to Kinnect
Kinnect is 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. Learn more about our work.
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.
Kinnect’s mission is to develop partnerships that transform beliefs, values, and actions to achieve permanency for all children in the foster care system in the shortest time possible. We believe every child deserves a forever family and a sense of belonging.
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.
