Kinship House was founded in 1996 and provides outpatient mental health services to children and their families. We specialize in championing children and families with target interventions during all stages of foster care, reunification and adoption. In over twenty years of providing mental health services, we have served thousands of local children on their journey to the care only a permanent and healthy family can provide. With almost 3,000 children in foster care annually in Multnomah County alone, our services ensure that children and family have the support they need to navigate the process in the healthiest way possible.
