Kinship Support Program

Kinship Support Program

Kinship Support Program is designed to complement case management services by providing direct support to non-licensed caregivers (relatives and non-relatives) of children in the Hillsborough County child welfare system.   Services provided in the caregivers’ homes and local communities.  The program utilizes direct family involvement to develop an individualized support plan to address necessary services such as case management, caregiver benefit assistance, crisis intervention, and peer support.  Support services are designed to strengthen and stabilize kinship placements to maintain children, requiring out of home placement, with their “family” versus licensed foster care.
