Our first goal is to build a foundation of safety for children by meeting immediate needs of the kinship family.
Our second goal is to provide the most permanent home for children by stabilizing the kinship family.
Our final goal is to meet the well-being needs of children by increasing caregivers’ capacity.
Foster Kinship’s programs are designed to meet goals through the following objectives:
Legal Status: Families are given tools to increase the stability of the placement through legal means such as guardianship.
Financial Resources: Families are assisted with applications for financial support and may be eligible for emergency resources from Foster Kinship.
Community Connection: Families are connected with resources, including transportation, to increase knowledge of and access to supportive programs.
Emotional Support: Families have access to free support groups, caregiver education classes, and family events with other kinship families.
