This program was designed to give kinship caregivers the opportunity to gain awareness of the multiple challenges they face raising their relative children. The purpose of this program is to orient kinship caregivers to educational information and resources within a support group format. The program provides interactive activities and discussions to gain knowledge about the following issues kinship caregivers may encounter: legal issues; financial problems; health and mental health concerns; educational challenges; child behavior and management challenges; difficult family relationships; and fair and equal treatment challenges. The program identifies the need for collaboration with helping professionals to address these issues. KIP was designed based on a review of literature that investigates kinship caregiver challenges, strengths, and available educational and support programs for them.
