The Kinship Family Institute (KFI) assists kinship families who need a connection to services, such as child care, education, health care, and financial help, and are seeking support from professionals or peers. The KFI also provides seminars, trainings, and workshops focused on kinship families needs, as well as support groups for these families. Trainings vary, from strengthening caregivers parenting skills and communication skills to relationship building, conflict resolution, self-care, and managing stress. The KFI offers a helpline for kinship caregivers and social service providers in the community. A caregiver who calls can talk to a kinship navigator to receive connections to services and resources and feel supported about their kinship situations.
