Connect Our Kids creates free tools for social workers to discover and engage extended families for foster children. Today, social workers are successfully placing at-risk foster kids by discovering and engaging extended family members. However, this family tree building process is labor intensive and time consuming - so very few foster kids receive this benefit. We are creating purpose built modern tools that dramatically decrease the time and effort needed to build family trees and collaboratively engage extended families. We give access to these tools for free to social workers across the US.
