Support Kinship Care Families
Kinship Care Families need YOUR help!
A kinship caregiver is the primary caregiver role a relative, most often a grandparent, assumes when another family member is unable or unwilling to fulfill their parental duties. Unlike foster families, kinship families do not receive formal financial or emotional support services. For many kinship caregivers, who are often living on social security, the financial and emotional stress can be overwhelming. And most children that are taken in by their kin families have experienced extreme trauma.
Kinship Caregivers are often overwhelmed with their new responsibilities and have few support systems. Providing an ongoing, monthly support group for kinship families is imperative to the health and wellbeing of the entire family.
Your gift of just $89 will ensure a kinship caregiver and two of their kin-children can attend one support group, share a healthy meal, and develop a strong community network.
