Kinship Care Options brochure from Virginia Department of Social Services

Kinship care is a way for children to stay connected to family when they have been voluntarily or involuntarily removed from the care of their parents. Removal may become necessary due to a parent’s illness, incarceration, lack of housing, insufficient income, abuse or neglect. Regardless of the reason for kinship care,most children fare better when connections to family and loved ones are maintained.
