Kinship Caregiver Navigator
Presented by Annamarie Compton, LPC
Parenthood. The most challenging and rewarding role for any of us. Imagine taking on the role of parent when you have already raised your own children and are close to retirement age. Or parenting a child of a relative or close friend when you have never been a parent yourself. Hard to imagine? Yet this is the reality for many of the grandparents and other kin who step up and care for children whose own parents are unable to raise them. While some of these children are living in kinship foster care, many others are not. Grandparents and other kinship caregivers sometimes need support navigating the challenges that come with their new role. Kinship caregiver navigator programs offer help to these families by providing information and referral services to grandparents and other relatives raising children who are not known to the child welfare system.
CASA volunteers will earn in-service hours for attending. Please feel free to bring your dinner.
