Kinship Care for Children in Foster Care
Relatives and and non-related kin often provide loving homes for children when their birth parents are unable to care for them. This type of arrangement, known as kinship placement, provides an environment that is likely more familiar to a child. For this reason, when a child needs to be placed out of home, finding caring relatives or non-related kin such as teachers or neighbors is a top priority for KVC. In Kansas, the average rate of kinship care rate is 47% of children in foster care, which is much better than the national average of 30%. This is better for children and families.
