Kinship ministry notes 20 years in Steuben

Kinship Community Residence, a ministry that operates in conjunction with Catholic Charities of Steuben, recently celebrated 20 years of service by dedicating its Rumsey Street home in Bath to Joseph Weider, a founder and longtime executive director of Kinship Family and Youth Services Inc.

Kinship is a grassroots effort established in the late 1960s and early 1970s by Weider and his brother, Tim. Joseph Weider was Kinship’s executive director from 1975 until his retirement in 2011.

The community residence, which opened on Sept. 18, 1995, provides housing, educational services and support groups for men who are battling alcoholism and other chemical addictions. Other Kinship programs include S.H.A.P.E. (Supportive Home and Parent Enrichment), a family-preservation initiative; Healthy Families Steuben, which helps expectant and new parents; and therapeutic foster care for children who come from abusive backgrounds.
