The Kinship Care Resource Center (KCRC) is a non-profit statewide organization through the School of Social Work at Michigan State University. Kinship care is the full time care, nurturing and protection of children by relatives, members of their tribes or clans, godparents, stepparents, or any adult who has a kinship bond with a child (Child Welfare League of America, 2011).

While kinship care is often a rewarding experience for both the child and their relative caregiver it can also come with many challenges. The KCRC supports Michigan kinship families by utilizing research to provide education and outreach for communities, agencies, and individuals involved in supporting kinship families.

We encourage you to look through our website. There is information for caregivers, support agencies, researchers, media, and policy makers. If you are not able to find what you are looking for then please contact us and we will do our best to assist you.
