The Kinship Care Program will provide information, advocacy, referrals, and resources, up to date information on kinship care laws, as well as a friendly ear to any adult who is raising someone else’s child.

This means:

  •  Advocacy to help kinship caregivers apply for the Non-Parent Caregiver grant, Medicaid, and Childcare Subsidy (if applicable) at the Department of Social Services.
  •  Assistance with free school meals (breakfast & lunch) and addressing any issues around enrolling your kinship child in school.
  • Guidance understanding the different child custody options
  • Community resource connections
  • Any issues around other types of benefits

Other services include:

  •  Legal advocacy with Family Court paperwork and understanding the Family Court process
  • Help line for information and referrals to available community resources
  • Kinship Family Events
  • Support groups and workshops related to kinship care topics. We also utilize the Parenting A Second time Around curriculum
    NOTE: Support Groups are held on alternate Wednesdays & Thursday evenings from 7:00PM-8:00PM
