Kinship Awareness Week September 23rd to 27th

September 23, 2019

During Kinship Awareness Week, Children’s Aid Societies celebrate the kin caregivers that support children and youth while caregivers address the challenges they are facing.

Kin support often means providing a safe and nurturing home, but it also includes informal supports like child care and transportation. Kin providers can be family members, but they can also be people who simply have an emotional connection to the child or youth.
