A Message from Carol

With the new year, we have a very exciting development that I'm proud to announce: this March, Kinship Center will be launching Monterey County Mobile Crisis Response Team. The team serves as an on-call unit of mental health professionals providing crisis intervention to youth experiencing an immediate crisis. Our team will go into schools, homes, youth centers, and other community locations to respond to any youth actively experiencing a crisis.
This new program will have a huge impact on the youth in our community: it will reduce unnecessary psychiatric hospitalizations, decrease unnecessary police involvement, and decrease placement changes for children not living with their biological parents.

In 2019, Kinship Center continued to bring positive change to the lives of children and families in our local communities:
  • We assisted with 157 legal guardianships for relatives raising their kin children
  • Finalized 20 adoptions and provided readiness assessments for 33 families in support of Monterey County Department of Social Services
  • Provided 63 meals to families for the holidays and gifts to hundreds of children and teens
  • Provided therapeutic programs for 193 children at Kinship Center’s Salinas and King City mental health clinics
  • Supported 400 children and their caregivers in 227 families through our Family Ties Program
The statewide preference for placing children with relatives when they cannot remain with their biological parents has resulted in fewer children entering the foster care system without a connection to a family member. The impact for us has been an increase in demand for the services of our relative caregiver program, Family Ties. Placement with relatives—rather than a foster family—has been proven to be preferable for children, providing the child with a comforting and empowering sense of familiarity, stability, and safety, and a strong commitment on the part of the caregivers to keep the child within the family.

Family Ties is a partnership between Kinship Center and the Monterey County Department of Social Services, and is the only program of its kind in Monterey County. The mental health and parenting support services provided to kin caregivers, the majority of whom are seniors living on fixed incomes, help ensure family stability and child and caregiver well-being. Local caregivers cannot access the same continuum of specialized supports anywhere else, and the stakes are high.

Family Ties’ services can mean the difference between a thriving family and one at risk of failure, with failure resulting in children entering foster care with strangers. Family Ties keeps children out of foster care, thereby saving the county money that would otherwise be spent on their care.

I would like to thank everyone who supported Kinship Center last year. It is because of your generosity that Kinship Center can continue providing critical services to children and families in our community. If you ever have questions, comments, or want to learn more about Kinship Center, you are always welcome to give us a call or stop by for a visit.

Happy New Year!

Kinship Center's New Mobile Crisis Response Team
Kinship Center is launching Monterey County Mobile Crisis Response Team, an on-call unit of mental health professionals providing same-day crisis intervention to youth experiencing an immediate crisis. The program provides services to low-income and at-risk community members, as it is designed to help high-risk youth with Medi-Cal or no insurance.
