Edgewood Kinship San Mateo

Edgewood Kinship San Mateo has served relative caregivers in San Mateo County for over ten years. Our services are designed to support and strengthen families, focusing on the needs of every family member so everyone together can succeed.

Kinship Support Network is able to provide a vast array of quality support services to relative caregivers and their families through volunteer hours and various funding sources including the Human Service Agency, grants, and donations from community members. The Older Americans Act (OAA) also partially funds Kinship services through the Family Caregiver Support Program. The OAA asks that we give our families the opportunity to contribute to our program. You do not have to contribute to continue receiving services. We will continue to provide services to you and your family no matter what.

If you would like to make a donation, it can be mailed to: Edgewood Center for Children and Families, Attention: Kinship, 957 Industrial Road, Suite B, San Carlos, CA 94070.
