Next of Kin: Resources and support for caregivers of children
Information provided by the Douglas County Parenting Coalition and The Family Tree

Does your shared kinship family feel happily blended…or do family members feel they have been through the ringer? Learn how to transition and realize that you are not alone – there is help and support.
Money, schooling, health and medical matters, legal and custody issues, and conflicts with birth parents are just a few of the concerns families in transition may experience. However, these challenges and life-changing situations can offer a unique opportunity to create strong, genuine and healthy families.
