Case management is available to kinship caregivers in Clark County, NV who request personalized resource guidance or any financial or direct resources assistance (vouchers, food, clothing).
A comprehensive review of the family situation and an application is required prior to acceptance into the case management program. Foster Kinship caseworkers will conduct the family evaluation in the kinship caregiver’s home.
Family evaluation applications are reviewed on a case by case basis and accepted based on family eligibility, program funding and caseworker availability.
Applications may be accepted, wait-listed or denied. Applicants and referring agency will be informed of status within 5 business days of the family evaluation.
Kinship caregivers who are accepted into in Foster Kinship’s case management program receive a complete needs assessment, comprehensive community resource referrals, guardianship and TANF application support, six months of support groups, home safety items, resource assistance, the opportunity to attend family events, ongoing advocacy and one-on-one support. One caseworker will be assigned to each family for the 6-month period.
