Kinship Care Program

A Family Education Program for Grandparents and Other Kin Raising Children.

In 1999, 2.3 million children lived with relatives without a parent present, commonly referred to as kinship care. The largest percentages of these children were teens (44%), a third is school-age (35%), and the remaining 21% are 5 or younger. Most of these children are cared for by a grandparent, but significant portions are also cared for by aunts and uncles.
