An Innovative School-Based Program for Children Raised in Kinship Care Families (Workshop 147)
One of the greatest challenges kinship caregivers face is the difficulty of navigating the school system and ensuring school success for the children in their care. Program coordinators and a kinship caregiver describe the services provided by the Kinship Care Connection (KCC), an innovative school-based intervention program created by the Florida Kinship Center to help kinship caregiving families. Additionally, the workshop session highlights start-up techniques, treatment strategies, and outcome measures as well as data that can be useful to those participants who may want to replicate this program in their own community.
