SEPTEMBER DECLARED KINSHIP CARE MONTH IN NEW YORK STATE

Legislators in the Senate unanimously passed a resolution earlier this year declaring September 2015 as Kinship Care Month, and members of the Assembly are set to vote on the same resolution today.

Kinship care refers to the more than 200,000 families in New York State who are relatives raising the children of other family members. Children who enter into the care of relatives often do so for the same reasons they might enter into foster care, because their parents are unable or unfit to care for them. Though the challenges are similar for kinship families compared to foster families, only about 5% of kinship caregivers receive the support and financial benefits that come with being in the foster care system.
