Date: 07/2016

Author(s): HSRI

The ProtectOHIO Kinship Supports intervention is a method designed to promote kinship placement as best practice, increasing attention to and support for kinship placements, caregivers, and families. Its purpose is to ensure that kinship caregivers have the support they need to meet the child’s physical, emotional, financial, and basic needs.

This brief shares the findings of HSRI's evaluation of Kinship Supports in 16 Ohio Public Children Services Agencies as part of an evaluation of Ohio's Title IV-E waiver demonstration.
