Kiara is a recurring character on The Fosters and a main character on the webseries spinoff, Girls United. She was first introduced in House and Home as Callie's new roommate in Girls United

Kiara is portrayed by Cherinda Kincherlow.


Kiara was placed in Girls United due to "gang stuff," vandalism, possessing and selling drugs and possession of a deadly weapon. At one point, she was also raped and has since only been with one man. Although, she says this has only been when they're high, so to her it doesn't count. She appears to have a tendency of interrupting people.

She becomes Callie's roommate as well as house sponsor while Callie is at Girls United. She offers Callie advice on how to survive at Girls United. 

After Girls United was destroyed, she was placed in an abusive foster home. Kiara called Callie for help and when the police arrived, they saw a man with a knife. Kiara stayed in Callie's room for a couple nights and learned that despite the incident, she was to be sent back to her abusive home. Callie and her went to a foster center for help, but made no progress. Kiara packed her stuff, left a note and ran away to live on the streets. 

After Kiara ran away, she began to live in the dangerous part of town and became a prostitute. At one point, Rita tried to save her by taking her off the streets. However, Kiara spat in her face and said she didn't need help. After Callie's help, Kiara is off the streets and back at Girls United.
