This informational guide was created with the generous assistance of caregivers and children in kinship families, social service agency heads and staff, educators and residents concerned about the thousands of families living in these not-so-unusual circumstances. All of their time and work was donated, and the information and insights they provided were invaluable. The result is Raising Your Relative's Kids: How to Find Help.
