The Peer Support Program is an initiative designed to provide support to kinship & foster parents by kinship & foster parents. These network-trained kinship & foster parents are referred to as Peer Support Providers.
Peer Support Providers have first-hand knowledge of the increasingly complex challenges to providing care to children and they have been trained in ways to provide assistance in a knowledgable and healthy manner. They give emotional and social support to empower kinship & foster parents and the children to whom they provide care. At the same time they are helping to support a strong and cooperative working relationship between kinship & foster parents and agencies.
The Kinship & Foster Family Network believes that an organized and comprehensive support system is critical to assisting all kinship & foster families fulfill their role as caregivers.
