Are you a relative care provider?

Kinship Care:

The Polk County Kinship Program is designed to provide financial support to a child that resides with a relative.  Kinship supports the concept of children residing with a relative as an alternative to entering foster care or another type of out-of-home placement.  The Kinship Program consists of three varying types of Kinship homes: voluntary, court ordered, and long term.  The Foster Care Coordinators are responsible for processing and approving Kinship applications, monitoring Kinship placements for compliance, and managing the Kinship waitlist.
