Why is kinship care important?

Kinship care is best for kids entering foster care because it maintains family connections and cultural identity, minimizes trauma, and improves children’s well-being. Children who are cared for by family members are more likely to return home with their parents and have better lifelong outcomes. Relatives are also more likely to care for siblings, reducing separation and increasing feelings of safety and connection for youth in foster care.
