Millions of grandparents are raising their grandchildren. Approximately 30-35% of children in foster care are living with extended family, and 1 in every 11 children in the US will spend some time in kinship care. While it shares many issues and joys with traditional adoption and foster care, kinship care is its own beast, and thus has its own challenges and rewards. This toolkit, which includes a video, facilitator guide, handouts, and resource guide looks at the unique benefits and challenges of kinship care. We also provide a list of tips to help parents raise children in kinship care.

  • What is kinship care?
  • How does kinship care benefit the child?
  • What are some of the emotional complexities kinship providers face?
  • Why does kinship care divide the caregivers loyalties?
