Kinship House received a grant in the amount of $15,000.00 from FCO Selections and LLC, local non-profit service providers. Using a framework centered on human rights and equity, Seattle Foundation develops partnerships for philanthropic organizations seeking to make the greatest impact in their investments. This generous donation to Kinship House was approved by Seattle Foundation this past summer and will be put towards general support.
Kinship House provides outpatient child and family services to help families bond and create secure attachments according to unique and individual needs. In addition to therapy and training, we regularly organize charity drives and outreach events to foster connection between our staff, patients and the greater community.
We thank Seattle Foundation for their support, and the generous contribution by CFO selections and LLC.

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give—the 2017 iteration will be held on November 28, 2017. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—nonprofits, businesses, and corporations as well as families and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a global movement dedicated to giving around the world.
It is our intention to raise awareness about our work in the community and participate in this global day of giving.

Our board members dedicate hours of volunteer time to lead our organization. Charity Adams – Portland Real Estate joined the Kinship House board over two years ago in February 2015. In her role as a board member, she sits on development committee and chairs our Light the Way auction.
She led the launch of the fundraiser last year and due to her dedication to putting together a successful event, we raised over $75,000 to support our work in caring for foster and adopted children. Our event this year (that took place just last week on October 26) was another success and we thank Charity for her leadership as our auction chair.
Thank you, Charity!

The Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (NECN) was founded in 1975 as an independent nonprofit organization comprised of 11 neighborhoods in inner North and Northeast Portland: Alameda, Boise, Concordia, Eliot, Humboldt, Irvington, King, Sabin, Sullivan’s Gulch, Vernon, and Woodlawn.
NECN’s mission is to increase livability through highly inclusive civic engagement and grassroots community building. NECN believes in creating healthy neighborhoods by engaging people to become directly involved in determining how their neighborhood evolves.
NECN provides support to neighborhoods through:
- Information and Referral – NECN is a general reference point if you have questions or are looking for something in our coalition boundaries.
- Project Assistance – We provide assistance for projects through funding, sponsorship, marketing, and more.
- Skill-building – We provide or connect residents, organizations, and neighborhood associations with opportunities to build their knowledge base through trainings, events, workshops, and more.
- Connections – NECN serves as a connecting point for residents, community organizations, and neighborhood associations to resources, organizations, and government agencies.
- Policy Formation – We provide channels for residents and organizations to inform and influence policy that affect the inner North and Northeast area.
Today, we met with the staff of NECN (Fran, Jessica, Laura, and Adam) to talk about ways we can collaboratively raise awareness about opportunities and resources for foster families, as well as, share information about neighborhood happenings. Sixty-three percent of our services at Kinship House is family therapy and we see a need to grow the awareness around supporting foster families in our community.
Stay tuned for updates!
