Working with previously untapped community partners helps kinship-serving agencies to better empower and sustain kinship families. Learn from a panel representing national organizations – including Family Resource Centers – that have local programming in communities across the country.  They will share how and why they began supporting kinship families and provide you with strategies for approaching untapped collaborators and working with them in your communities.  

By expanding your partnerships, you can reach a wider array of kinship families and offer them additional services, while your new partners learn more about kinship families and expand their service reach too.  It’s a win-win!
