Kinship Care

The full-time care and nurturing of a child by someone who is related to the child by family ties or by a significant prior relationship connection.

Question: kinship care? I’m about to have my nephew stay with me for three years (he’ll be 18). I kinda know what to expect and how to get resources. We’re in Alameda County in California. What suggestions do you have for me and maybe resources in my area? Sorry for the confusion, he’ll be 18 in three years.

Answer: Via Foster Care there are several programs and will help until 18 or even 21 if he's in school. There's Kinship,Yokum and if you are thinking of adopting there is AAP (adoption assistance program) I also found Family to Family in your county. And a youth program. GOOD LUCK
