Foster Kinship Wins $500 Grant from GOOD for Kinship Caregiver Outreach

I (Ali) and the board of directors of Foster Kinship are very excited to announce that we have won $500 from GOOD to be used towards kinship caregiver outreach and support groups in Las Vegas. We will be receiving the grant money in the coming weeks and are so excited to get our project started.

The Idea

Find the kinship caregivers in Vegas! Our goal is to locate as many individuals who are taking care of their relative’s children as possible, in order to let them know that there are new services and resources available to them that will help better care for the children and themselves.

The Specifics

We estimate there are 19K kinship caregivers around Las Vegas, and most of these individuals don’t know that there is peer support and resource direction available! Foster Kinship wants to build awareness and help these caregivers help the kids! $500 would go a LONG WAY to help keep home in the family, and the benefit would be more stability in the home for at-risk children! With the $500 Foster Kinship will:

1. Create printed materials to distribute all over Las Vegas.

2. Support a month of advertising and press releases.

3. Pay for the postage for direct mail outreach.

4. Fund the first few caregiver support groups of 2012- including water, snacks, printed resources and childcare for the kids.

Our goal is to ensure that kinship caregivers in Las Vegas know that there is support available, and to make sure this support is free for those who need and seek it!

Thanks to everyone who voted for us and helped us spread the word.
