September is Kinship Care Month
September is National Kinship Care Month! Celebrate the legacy of kinship caregiving by honoring those who have accepted the call to serve one of their own. When children are placed with kin, or those recognized as relatives, family connections are maintained and strengthened. Help us spread the message about how valuable kinship caregivers are and the resources that are available to assist kinship families. #YesWeKin!
