It’s important to know that you are not alone. Kinship care support groups, sometimes combined with foster care or adoption support groups or called Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, provide an opportunity for caregivers to find support, share their experiences and get advice from each other.
When calling for a support group in your county, please ask to speak with the coordinator of the kinship care program or the grandparents raising grandchildren program. If your county is not listed, please call the nearest county.
These phone numbers can change frequently. Please contact KCRC if you encounter a non-working number or if you are aware of any changes. Only counties with known support groups are listed here.
