Grandfamilies and Kinship Support Network

Oct 10, 2022 | Care Needs & Caregiver Support

A National Technical Assistance Center (Network) helps state, tribal, and territorial government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and kinship navigator programs holistically work across systemic and geographic boundaries to better support grandparents, other relatives, and close family friends and the children they raise. We do not serve grandfamilies or kinship families directly, because communities are better equipped to do that. They know their family laws and support programs best. While we do not help the families with their individual cases, kin/grandfamily caregivers are at the core of all we do, guiding and informing us. If you work for a relevant government agency in a state, tribe, or territory; are a kinship navigator; or support the families through a nonprofit organization, please join us to access our offerings free of charge.
