If a child can safely stay in their own family, that’s the best result we can hope for. Our Kinship Care family preservation project helps children remain with their parents or extended family whenever they can in safety and health. Through kinship care, CIF can support permanency by working with a family’s greatest assets – love and commitment.
Kinship care is the most cost effective and permanent solution for vulnerable children. Children in Kinship Care are followed up by our case managers at least once a month to ensure their needs are being met, and to support and encourage the adults looking after them.
