Kinship Care is a program designed to help support a child who resides outside of his or her own home, either temporarily or long term, with a relative.
Kinship Care supports the concept of children residing with a relative to alleviate family stress or temporary familial problems, rather than being placed in a foster home or other type of out-of-home placement.
