1175d – Webinar – Engaging and Serving Kinship Adoptive Families
(February 2018) In this 90-minute webinar, we will share the benefits and difficulties found in familial permanency arrangements. We will also explore strategies to engage and serve kinship providers who may be reluctant to seek support, or who are unaware support is available. Lastly, we cover specific dynamics in relative caregiving that support programs should address to ensure the best outcomes for children and families in kinship adoptions and legal guardianships.
