What is Kinship Guardianship?

A kinship caregiver is defined as any individual who is a relative, godparent, member of a child’s tribe or clan, or an adult with a significant bond (fictive kin) who are raising a child or youth because the biological parents are not able or unwilling to do so.

Kinship caregivers could be eligible for legal assistance from various agencies across the state.
