Description:

Kinship Care is a program to help support a child who lives outside of his or her home with the relative. The child may be living temporarily or for the long term with a relative such as:

An adult brother or sister
A first cousin
A nephew or niece
An uncle or aunt or a grandparent
Others by blood or marriage (see Ch. DCF 58.03(18) Administrative code for the definition of Relative)
Kinship care helps a family support a child in the home of a relative that might be under stress or when the child has experienced abuse or neglect.

With this support, placing a child in a foster home or another out-of-home care setting may be avoided. For children in the child welfare system who cannot continue living at home with his or her parents, Kinship Care may be another placement option.
