As of July 2021, 39% of children in the foster care system are being supported by their aunts, uncles, grandparents and family friends. Kinship caregivers play an absolutely vital role in the safety net for vulnerable young Texans, making it especially important that they have the resources they need.
This fund will be used to help meet financial and resource needs, and to help families overcome barriers to become verified homes in order to receive ongoing support.
Your contribution to this fund can make a real difference in the lives of these families and will be distributed directly to kinship caregivers in Texas.
Thank you in advance for your support of Texans providing loving care and needed stability in the lives of Texas children and youth.
