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.
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.
