Kinship Care & Financial Care Publication

7/23/2003:   The National Endowment for Financial Education has joined with CWLA to produce Sticking Together: Kinship Care and Financial Care, a publication designed to offer families an understanding of the challenges and rewards involved in kinship care. Highlights include advice on physical and emotional health, family reunification, legal guardianship, managing family role changes, and meeting basic needs from cooking to clothing, child care, and afterschool programs. The second part of the publication focuses on financial issues facing those who provide kinship care, such as preserving retirement savings, estate and will basics, and tax insurance issues.

Copies of the publication are free, so agencies need only pay for shipping and handling: $25 for each box of 90 copies. To order, call 800/407-6273 or visit www.cwla.org/pubs and request item #8986.
