When family members step in to help care for children, either temporary or long-term, they often have questions and need information.
“I can’t get my granddaughter on my medical insurance, now what?”
“Some people are telling me to adopt, others are saying guardianship is okay.”
“Do I qualify for financial assistance or daycare benefits?”
“The school won’t let me change his bus route because I am not a parent or guardian.”
“My landlord needs documentation that my great-nephew is in my custody.”
“My grandson needs a medical procedure but they won’t see him without parental consent.”
Our Fostering Healing experts – therapists, legal advocates, social workers, and resource specialists – support abused and neglected children, including those in foster and kinship care. All of our services are voluntary and free.
Our program does not replace formal child welfare services. Rather, we support and supplement those services by working in collaboration with the child welfare agencies when appropriate.
