Kinship Care: Focus on the Children

Kinship Care: Focus on the Children is designed for kinship caregivers and others who are interested in learning about foster care and kinship/relative adoption.

Explore who a kinship caregiver is, why and how children come to be in kinship care, the impacts, benefits, and challenges of kinship care, resources and support available for children and caregivers, and strategies for supporting children, especially those affected by trauma.

This webinar is presented by Janet Salo, Family Support Specialist at Kinship Family Support Services and will be helpful for those who are informally or formally caring for other’s children (kinship caregivers), families concerned about related children’s care, or professionals who encounter grandparents, siblings, or other relatives caring for children, and want to know more about these increasingly common families and the resources available to help them.
