Foster Kinship Expanding Services for Kinship Caregivers

March 6, 2013 – LAS VEGAS, NV: Local 501c3 nonprofit Foster Kinship is expanding services to kinship caregivers in the valley. The expansion will kick off with a third free family event for individuals who are raising their relative’s children in Clark County, NV. Additional services also include a weekly telephone helpline and additional support and resource groups.

Foster Kinship was founded in December 2011 to help relatives who have taken on the difficult job of creating safe, loving homes for vulnerable children when the parents are no longer able or willing to do so. It is the only organization in NV dedicated to providing support and resources to the over 19,000 kinship caregivers raising more than 35,000 children in Clark County.

On Saturday March 30, Kinship caregivers and their entire families are invited to a free Easter Picnic held at Children’s Memorial Park from 12-2 PM. Families will enjoy BBQ, Shave Ice, an Easter egg hunt, egg decorating, pictures with the Easter bunny, face painting, games and prizes. Foster Kinship will announce the expansion of services to caregivers at the event and community organizations will be also on hand to provide relevant information to caregivers.

This free event is open to anyone who is primarily responsible for raising their relative’s child, regardless of the caregiver’s age or the child’s custody status.

Community Partners for the Easter Picnic include: Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living, Real Kine Shave Ice, CareMore.

The event will take place at noon on Saturday, March 30th at Children’s Memorial Park.
