hi, I'M rebekah!
I've been working in the child welfare system for over 12 years and have seen the struggles that kinship/foster parents face.
There is a gap between children that get displaced from their homes, to their foster/kinship parents. I am here to stand in that gap. To walk along side both child and foster parent as they navigate this new territory.
Holding space for kinship parents has allowed for connection and growth during the time when they need to be heard.
Creating Kin Connect has allowed me to put together resources, frameworks, and support systems to help those who are struggling to piece together this new life. This is not a path you need to walk alone.
"Kin Connect has been such a blessing to our family while becoming a kinship home. The process was overwhelming and not very clear until we found Kin Connect. Rebekah has since helped the process become clear, easy, and enjoyable. The support we receive daily is unmatched in adjusting to our new normal. Thank you Kin Connect for guiding us with so much patience and kindness!"
"Having Rebekah in our lives has been more than a service. She has gone over and beyond her call of duty. My husband and I had our whole world disrupted and everything changed overnight. We tried our best to stay calm in the midst of some very upsetting news, that our daughter was no longer able to take care of her 5 children. We had to step in and do our very best for everyone involved, but most especially the children. When Rebekah stepped in, I felt the weight of so many of my worries relieved.
She is such a perfect fit for this service. She has lent me her listening ear and heart. There have been times when I just needed to talk to someone who would understand my sadness and frustrations. Rebekah has been there for us, her experience and the quality person that she is has been more than I could have ever asked for.
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to Thank~you."
I am very thankful for Rebekah and Kin Connect. I myself was a foster child and I have wanted to become a foster parent for quite some time. Rebekah has been very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. I am very glad that I can pay it forward and take kiddos in and provide what they need. -Sarah
