September Declared Kinship Awareness Month in Nebraska

Published: 9/21/2018

We are very excited and honored that September has been declared Kinship Awareness Month this year for the first time ever in Nebraska!

Many people may not be aware of Kinship Care or the vast impact it has on nearly 800 children and roughly 450 families, in Douglas and Sarpy counties alone.

We know that relative and kinship homes are where children should be if it is a safe, viable option because this is where children thrive and feel the most connected.

Our hope is to bring awareness of Kinship Care and its importance to so many children and families both locally and nationally. The month of September continues as a time to honor and recognize Kinship Care, promoting awareness to those who play such a valuable role in supporting children in Nebraska.
