The reunification process is made much easier when a child receives care from extended family members. Kinship caregivers include people who are close to the family and may be related to the child by blood, marriage, or adoption, or they may not be related at all, but have a significant relationship in the life of the child or their family.
If you are interested in kinship care, read our Kinship Guidebook for an overview. This Guidebook provides helpful resources and definitions and walks you through what to expect step by step.
