Child Welfare Information Gateway sent out a reminder for Kinship Care month, linking to their page of resources about and for kinship caregivers
If you’re near Skyway, you can join in the celebration by donating to, volunteering at or simply attending The Love Train on September 24th, a kinship and community event held by Women United. (Event details here)
Also from the Child Welfare Information Gateway: 3 podcast episodes covering Advances in Supporting Kinship Caregivers, a series exploring how child welfare agencies are increasing engagement, training, and support for kinship caregivers.
Part 3 focuses on the immense success of the Port Gamble S’Kallam tribe in Washington state. Their prevention-focused approach has led to an almost 70-percent reduction in the number of children in care.
