What is Kinship Care?
We are a grass-roots care group made of individuals who are raising their grandchildren or the children of other kin due to unforeseen circumstances. Once a month, we meet to share resources, plan events, and show support for each other. We welcome all local citizens to join us and share their knowledge.
