Family Social Services
What is Kinship Care?
The full-time care, nurturing, and protection of children by: Relatives (through blood, adoption, or marriage); Godparents; Stepparents; or any adult who has a bond that the family recognizes as significant to the child/family.
Family Child Care Services
Our in-home approach makes it convenient for providers to access professional learning support that is individualized to capitalize on their talents and passions while strengthening their observational and reflective capacities. Instead of prescribing remedies to address perceived deficits, the Early Learning Specialist builds a relationship with the provider to learn how best to support them.

This 24-hour training is designed to provide fathers with information about the child welfare systems, the courts, child support, and to increase parenting skills. Our goal is to engage the fathers of children who are placed in out-of-home care and to increase the father’s involvement in the lives of their children.
