Kinship Care – Children living with family or friends who care for them and provide them with shelter and safety. Kinship caregivers include grandparents, godparents, aunts/uncles,  cousins, and stepparents (through blood, adoption, or marriage) or any adult who is not a relative but has a bond which the family recognizes with the child or children. 

  • Informal Kinship Care is parenting of children by kin as a result of a decision by the family.

  • Formal Kinship Care is parenting of children by kin as a result of a determination by the court and the child protective service agency.
