Support for new beginnings and healthy families.

Our mission is to champion the successful permanent placement of each foster child who comes to our door by understanding their unique history, culture, and needs on their journey to finding a forever home.

Kinship House provides outpatient mental health services to foster and adopted children and their families. We specialize in championing children and families with target interventions during all stages of foster care, reunification, and adoption. Founded in 1996, we are a locally accessible facility based in the Lloyd District on the east side of Portland, Oregon.

Our Kids

If all you have ever known is abandonment, how do you know anything else? What is it like to be a teenager with nowhere to turn? What happens when you only know how to use anger to express your feelings? To share in the success, read our Kinship kids stories.



Our clinicians are experts in the field with years of direct service experience. Our staff also provides expert training to professionals in our community. Please see programs and training for more information.
