Ali Caliendo, Executive Director of the local nonprofit Foster Kinship, recently provided an overview of her organization to the UNLV Community Engagement Council and discussed prospective partnership opportunities. The mission of Foster Kinship is to support family members who serve in a fostering role for the six percent of children in Nevada growing up without either parent. The nonprofit provides evidence-informed programs that strengthen caregivers’ capacity to provide safe, permanent, and nurturing homes for vulnerable children. Foster Kinship helps provide resources they need to raise healthy children. Learn more about this nonprofit at the Foster Kinship website.
