Kinship Connection

Kinship caregivers are relatives, friends, neighbors and other people with a significant relationship to the child, youth or family. Kinship caregivers provide care and protection to children and youth who cannot remain safely in their home due to issues including:

  • Child abuse and neglect
  • Substance abuse
  • Incarceration
  • Mental health
  • Domestic violence
  • Death of a parent
  • Financial hardships
  • Military deployments

As kinship caregivers, you are not alone. You are a member of a large and growing community of caring people in Colorado.
