Kinship Child Care

  • Kinship child care is available for children temporarily placed in the home of a kinship caregiver
  • Children must be active in an open Children’s Services case.
  • Children must be in care as a result of a safety plan, temporary arrangement monitored by HCJFS, or in agency custody and placed with a kinship caregiver
  • Child care is tied to employment, educational or respite needs of caregiver or social/ developmental needs of the child
  • Care is for children under age of 13, unless a professionally verified need exists for a child 13‑18 with a physical or mental disability
