Taking care of a relative's child can be a wonderful experience and at times may feel completely overwhelming. Every family's experience is different, but typical family resource requirements include guidance about things such as:
- Basic needs
- Foster care
- Legal issues
- Personal care
- Working with the Michigan Department of Human Services
It is important to know that you are not alone. According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation there are over 64,000 children in kinship care in Michigan. Many communities have support groups to help bring kinship caregivers together.
