The Kinship Programs work to support and stabilize families who have taken in and are caring for a relative’s or non-biological child. This collaborative program between the Adams County and Douglas County Departments of Human Services connects eligible families with community services and financial assistance to help address the challenges of caring for a relative’s child.






Program Services and Referrals:

The Kinship program provides referrals, case management, and possible financial assistance to help meet the family’s needs and increase stability, such as:

  • Individualized goal setting to meet the family's needs and support the children in their care
  • Child’s clothing, bedding, and extracurricular activities
  • Legal referrals for guardianship and adoption
  • Home-based case management services
  • Food assistance and other basic needs   
  • Housing referrals and assistance
  • Job training and education
  • Mental health services
  • Budgeting assistance
  • Medical referrals
Who can participate?

Program participants must reside in Douglas or Adams Counties and be a relative (kinship) caretaker of a child who receives “Child-only TANF” or be a “TANF Eligible” family making under $75,000 per year and receiving services through the County, such as Child Welfare.

How does the program work?

Family Tree will work with the family to determine eligibility for these and other programs. Our Case Managers will schedule a time to visit with the family (and children) in the home which allows us the opportunity assess your needs and see how we can best help.
