20,000 youth age out of the American foster care system annually.

By the age of 26, two-thirds of those who aged out of foster care will have experienced homelessness, incarceration, or premature death. You can help break the cycle of trauma by giving every child someone to lean on.

Our Impact

I have been in the field of social services for almost 40 years, and cannot recall a single time that we have been offered assistance in delivering our mission with no strings attached. Through our family finding program, and with the support of the Connect Kids software, the Children’s Home Network has returned hundreds of children back to their families, restoring their sense of belonging, love, and hope.

Connect Our Kids is the tool that has helped us in family finding to be as successful as we are. We have the highest rate of relative placement in Kansas right now. As an agency, we are at 50.8% of placing all kids in foster care in Relative/Kinship homes.
