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.

"Everyone says you are a special person. I am great for doing this for the kids. I tell you this, I am like everyone else. I am not special, or great. I am just a normal person with a lot of love for family and kids. These kids are like my own." - Aunt Pamela

Kinship care includes those relationships established through an informal arrangement, legal custody, guardianship order, a relative foster care placement or kinship adoption.
