The Kinship Programs work to support and stabilize families who have taken in and are caring for a relative’s or non- biological child. This collaborative program between Adams County and Douglas County Departments of Human Services connects eligible families with community services and financial assistance to help address the challenges of caring for a relative’s child.
Program Services and Referrals:
- Food assistance
- Medical referrals
- Budgeting assistance
- Child’s clothing and bed
- Job training and education
- Housing assistance referrals
- Mental health services
- Child’s extracurricular activities
The program provides referrals, case management, and possible financial assistance to help meet the family’s needs and increase stability, such as:
Who can participate?
Program participants must reside in Douglas or Adams Counties and be a relative (kinship) caretaker of a child who receives “Child-only TANF” or be a “TANF Eligible” family making under $75,000 per year and receiving services through the County, such as Child Welfare.
How does the program work?
Family Tree will work with the family to determine eligibility for these and other programs. Our Case Managers will schedule a time to visit with the family (and children) in the home which allows us the opportunity assess your needs and see how we can best help.
