It’s All Relative: Kinship Support.
First Thursday of every month from 7:00 – 8:00 pm at this zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89347888148
Drop by for kinship resources, help with licensing, and answers to your kinship questions.
Are you raising a child of a family member or a family friend? Your circumstance means you have joined the community in a unique way. As a kinship caregiver, you are dealing with special dynamics, and navigating through the system in a specific way. You’re looking for family-focused resources, and we are here to help.
Almost half the children placed in out-of-home care by the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) are placed with a relative or person known to the child and/or family. The financial, legal, and emotional issues of raising a relative’s child can be challenging.
We are here to help assist and provided resources for:
· Unlicensed care of a relative placement
· Foster licensing to care for a relative placement
In addition to the Resource Library listed below, you may need more individualized support. Please feel free to contact our Kinship Coordinator, Luanne Marshall by email email@example.com or call 206-221-4913.
Please fill out this form for more information on fostering and a member of the CaRES team will contact you with an email and phone call introducing you to our program and to see how we may help support you.
