During our help line hours, our client specialist will be available by phone to answer your basic kinship questions, refer you to resources, or set up an appointment with our director for a family evaluation.

Foster Kinship help line is not a crisis or emergency line. If you are facing an urgent situation due to lack of resources, call 2-1-1 in Nevada for community referrals.

Regular support groups include dinner and childcare and are guided by a professional facilitator.

Come and meet with other individuals who are parenting their relative’s children in the Las Vegas area. We will discuss the joys and challenges of raising your grandchild, niece or nephew, or other relative.

We will also share best practices and resources for kinship caregivers. Our groups are confidential and non-judgmental. You can laugh, cry, and lean on and learn from others who are walking in your shoes.
