First Kinship Family Fun Night A Success!

November 10, 2012 Posted by Ali

Foster Kinship, in partnership with The Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living, hosted our first Kinship Family Fun Night Friday November 9th. The event brought 194 kinship caregivers and their families out for pizza and cupcakes, activities for the kids, resources for the adults.

Kids activities included face-painting, games, art projects and a pretty incredible drum circle.

Information about available resources for kinship caregivers were provided from Foster Kinship, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, Fostering Southern Nevada, Innovation Behavioral Health Solutions, Boys Town Nevada Common Sense Parenting Classes, East Valley Services Senior Respite program, Social Services Kinship Care Program (TANF) and the Kinship Licensing at Department of Family Services.

Each family left with non-perishable food items and a grocery voucher to help prepare Thanksgiving meal.

The Las Vegas Center for Spiritual Living provided space and volunteers to pull the event off smoothly, including people who helped transport families to the location.

Channel 8 did a short news piece on the event that can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/gowDz3d1rq4
