You Said Yes to Kinship Care

Becoming a kinship caregiver can happen suddenly. One day you’ll wake up expecting the day to develop like all the other days before it. You’ll shower, get dressed, have breakfast, and begin your usual daily routine. Except on this day, you’ll receive a call from children’s services, a neighbor, a friend, or a family member. It happens in an instant, yet the request is life-changing: “Please care for this child.”

Love Yourself, Love Your Youth

I want to take a moment to celebrate and recognize you, the kinship caregiver, and to reflect on the incredibly important work you do each day. I also want to ask you to think about taking the best care of yourself that you can in this challenging and rewarding role.
