Meet Meredith

My name is Meredith Kahn and I’m a 28 year old full-time student and program manager for a non-profit that provides services to adults with developmental disabilities. For the last 6 years I have dedicated myself to the care and support of children and adolescents with extensive histories of trauma and dual-diagnoses of psychological and behavioral health problems who are part of the foster care system. I have worked with some of the most challenging adolescents on the west coast (including children convicted of murder!) and have loved every moment of it, giving everything I have to offer to kids with no one to advocate for them. I’ve been working in childcare in multiple capacities spanning 16 years with kids aged infant to young adult, including babysitting, dance teacher, camp counselor, vacation bible school teacher, and so on. Nothing gives me greater joy than enriching children’s lives and it’s my Read more fervent determination to provide the support and complex childcare for my career. I love to reach kids on their level and interact and play with them, offering a playmate as well as a highly capable and responsible caregiver.
