This month we highlight Kinship Care - Stepping In: A Guide for Kinship Caregivers in South Carolina published by the South Carolina Department of Social Services. Kinship Care is, many times, the very best alternative for children whose parents are unable to care for them. Because the child already knows you, you also ease the trauma of this huge change. As you take on this extra responsibility, you are not alone. This guide can help you know what to expect -- and what is expected of you; see how you can meet the child's needs and the needs of your own family; and find out where you can go to get answers, support, and more.
