With today’s prices, including inflation and rising costs, making each dollar count is becoming increasingly important in meeting our expanding budgets. For Kinship caregivers, learning how to make the most of every coin and dollar is essential when taking on the additional costs related to caring for relative and fictive kin children. From daily expenses such as grocery shopping to doing our taxes, we’ll explore how to make the most of each dollar!

Join us for the first webinar of 2023 where we will learn strategies for developing a spending plan that matches what we earn, identify the goals that are important for our families, and finding ways that we can save money in our daily lives. We’ll learn how to track what we spend, prioritize what is important, and set goals for what we want for our families! Additionally, we’ll also learn about how kinship care can impact your 2022 taxes including any tax credits your families will be eligible for.  You don’t want to miss this!!
