Kinship Resources

FFTA’s Kinship Philosophy

All children belong in families, preferably their own families. When children cannot safely live with their parents, they should have every opportunity to live safely with relatives or those with whom they have a family-like relationship.

FFTA’s Vision for Kinship Treatment Foster Care

Consistent with FFTA’s kinship philosophy, FFTA’s vision is that children in out-of-home care with treatment needs can have those needs met by relatives or those with whom they have a family-like relationship, with access to the full array of training, services, and supports available through treatment foster care to help them stay safe, achieve permanency, and thrive.

FFTA's Kinship Foster Care Toolkit

The Kinship Treatment Foster Care Initiative Toolkit is a collection of what we've learned through research, summits, professional expertise, and tried-and-true strategies. It was developed for FFTA members and their public agency partners to be a practical resource to create strategies that will engage and support kin who are caring for children and youth with treatment needs.
