Kinship Care

Kinship Care is a living arrangement where a minor child is residing with a legal relative such as an adult brother or sister, a first cousin, a nephew or niece, an uncle or aunt or a grandparent, etc. This arrangement can be voluntary or court ordered. The relative could be eligible for a monthly financial grant.
