A Crucial Part of the Village

We offer required instructor-led courses for kinship families. Beyond the kinship-focused class, kinship families are strongly encouraged to attend the remaining seven monthly classes. Each session provides unique insights into the kinship family experience, situations you may encounter, solutions to typical problems, and many other topics important for those preparing to care for a child they know.

Class schedules are available from your Kinship Family Consultant (KFC).
