The 15th Annual Kinnect Golf Outing will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at St. Denis Golf Course. The format for the outing is a shotgun start at 10 a.m. Registration and sponsorship are available online.
The Kinnect Golf Outing is attended by founding and long-term supporters along with those who are new to our work. All proceeds from the Outing support Kinnect's mission of finding permanent families for children in foster care in the shortest time possible. Kinnect currently facilitates and supports four key programs in Ohio:
30 Days to Family® Ohio: currently moving 70% of children served from foster care to kin
Ohio Kinship & Adoption Navigator (OhioKAN) Program: designing and launching statewide support for families
Affirm Me: finding permanency for LGBTQ+ youth in the Cuyahoga County foster care system
Youth Centered Permanency Roundtables: helping older youth co-create their permanency plans
Please join us for the 15th Annual Kinnect Golf Outing and help to ensure that all children who experience the foster care system remain connected to their culture, their community, and their kin.

Handwashing is one of the most effective things to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.Especially during such times, everyone should have basic access to clean water and soap.As the COVID-19 virus spreads, thousands of our partner communities still remain vulnerable. Cut off from the income-generating networks, soap can be a luxury for these people, especially when retailers have hiked the prices for extra profits.While we want our staff in Uganda to practice social distancing, we do not want to leave our most vulnerable project partners without these life-saving supplies. One of our team members will make deliveries as needed to three hotspot communities, now through the ‘end’ of the crisis.Help us save the lives of the kids at the HIV orphanage and refugee communities who do not have access to the resources needed to stay healthy during this time.By signing up top give $5/monthly, you can supply soap for a child to bathe, wash hands, wash clothes and wash utensils.Clean water, hygiene and sanitation are basic human rights. https://www.drinklocaldrinktap.org/covid-19-emergency-fund/
Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio
Now more than ever, we’re so grateful for the community that has funded, volunteered, celebrated, and advocated for The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio through the years. At a time when everything feels uncertain, we find comfort and encouragement knowing that you care about our cause.
Our Walk, Rock and Run will be held virtually on June 21st. Diversity Center staff members, and special surprise guests will be live on Facebook and Instagram at 8:30 a.m., walking the route with you. You may walk or run virtually between June 21st and July 6th. For details, visit https://www.diversitycenterneo.org/events/walk-rock-run/
While much of the world has stopped, our mission to eliminate bias, bigotry and racism will not be placed on pause. That’s why we’re asking you to help us cover the cost of continuing our diversity, equity and inclusion work with students.
We have all seen how the impact of COVID-19 is especially severe for those in marginalized socio-economic groups (people of color, the elderly, youth, people with disabilities, indigenous people, members of the LGBTQ+ community, refugees, and migrants).
Our programming, in School & Youth, SHIFT Consulting, and in LeadDIVERSITY, is a strong antidote to the bias, bigotry and racism that has created such inequity.
Our work is needed now, more than ever!
Participating virtually and donating to Walk, Rock and Run, is the safest, simplest, and most effective way to ensure that we can continue our School & Youth programming as we adapt to ever-changing circumstances due to COVID-19.
If you were planning on attending Walk, Rock and Run this year, consider donating in the amount that you would have spent on gasoline, parking, breakfast and coffee, had you attended the event. Please consider a donation of $25 to $50 or more.
While all of us are facing great challenges at this time, we hope that you can find some peace knowing that because of your generosity, we are working overtime to develop an additional program delivery model, Distance Learning.
On behalf of all of us at The Diversity Center, thank you for being a part of our community. Thank you for helping us to create communities where all people are connected, respected and valued. We wish you and your family health, safety, and happiness. With your support, not only will we get through this, but we will come out stronger.
