Kinship Care Portal
Welcome to the Kinship Care Portal, Georgia's one-stop shop for information, resources and support for kinship caregivers.
Kinship care refers to a temporary or permanent arrangement in which a relative or any non-relative adult who has a long-standing relationship or bond with the child and/or family has taken over the full-time, substitute care of a child whose parents are unable or unwilling to do so.
Kinship care includes those relationships established through an informal arrangement, legal custody, guardianship order, a relative foster care placement or kinship adoption.
