Categories: ,

Description

This group will focus on the day to day issues involving relative and fictive kin care and will be shaped by the identified needs of group participants. This group will be a place where each member can find support, resources, ideas, and a place to belong as a Relative or Fictive Kin provider and is open to caregivers who are caring for children in family arrangements (without CPS involvement) or for families who have temporary/permanent custody of their relative or fictive kin children. During this group, participants can talk with members about the emotions, challenges, joys, and stress that being a fictive kin or relative care giver can bring to find support, encouragement, and motivation. As a participant in this group, everyone is encouraged to share their experiences and ideas with each other as a way of sharing resources and increasing one another’s confidence as a caregiver. The group will be capped at 12 members. In order to participate in this group, please use the link to sign up!
