Generations United and the ABA Center on Children and the Law, with the support of Casey Family Programs, have published a new brief that provides kinship practice examples from the across the country, which is organized by six main topics. It’s designed to help jurisdictions change policy and practice to promote kin placements and permanency, and successfully implement a kin-first culture.
