What the Program Offers
The KIN program offers home based or phone support to non-parent caregivers that best fits the family’s unique needs. KIN staff will assist families in becoming connected to services and resources to help them best care for the child(ren) in their home, parenting support and guidance, assistance in completing financial aid forms, advocacy and navigating legal issues. The KIN program also offers a parent support group with a focus on parenting a second time around.
To be eligible to receive support from the KIN program, individuals need to be the primary caregiver for child(ren) who are not their own. **It is not required for individuals to have legal custody of the child(ren) in their care to receive assistance. **
