Google Community Space | "My life changed with a phone call. They said you either pick her up or she's going to a shelter care facility." In partnership with Lincoln, we brought kin caregivers and experts together to activate dialogue around the adverse impacts of Hidden Foster Care. Due to a well-intentioned effort to "keep kids out of the system," relatives are frequently encouraged to bypass juvenile court and care for at-risk children outside of formal foster care - often these families end up without the supports and services necessary to address the impacts of trauma. Together with our partners we're evaluating a set of recommendations to better aid these children and their families. Special thanks to the Walter S. Johnson Foundation and the Zellerbach Family Foundation for their generous support which makes this conversation possible.
