Kinship Care

Services

In response to recommendations of the National Commission on Family Foster Care, CWLA 1990 Biennial Assembly resolutions, and requests from the child welfare field for policy and practice guidelines, CWLA convened the North American Kinship Care Policy and Practice Committee in 1992. The Committee wrote an extensive report on the definition of kinship care, the value of kinship care, conceptual framework and principles and the need for sound legislation, policy & practice guidelines. As a result of the Committee's work, CWLA formed Kinship Care Services in 1992. The publication: Kinship Care: A Natural Bridge (ORDER) was published from the work of the Committee.
