History

Kindred Family Focus began as PATH MN in 1972. When PATH MN diverged from PATH affiliation in July 2011, it rebranded as Kindred Family Services. In 2012, Kindred Family Services affiliated with Nexus. On January 1, 2014, another Nexus affiliate -Family Focus - merged with Kindred Family Services to form Kindred Family Focus. In March 2017, Kindred Family Focus experienced additional growth through merger when PATH MN merged with Kindred Family Focus to create Minnesota's largest private, nonprofit foster care, adoption, and home-based care agency. The merger allowed Kindred Family Focus to build on programs and community services. Today, Kindred Family Focus has an expanding continuum of youth and family services that help meet Minnesota's growing need for foster care, adoption, home-based care, and continuous care.
