Identifying and Engaging Untapped Partners to Support Kinship Families

June 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Working with previously untapped community partners helps kinship-serving agencies to better empower and sustain kinship families. Learn from a panel representing national organizations – including Family Resource Centers – that have local programming in communities across the country. They will share how and why they began supporting kinship families and provide you with strategies for approaching untapped collaborators and working with them in your communities. By expanding your partnerships, you can reach a wider array of kinship families and offer them additional services while your new partners learn more about kinship families and expand their service reach too. It’s a win-win!

Panel members: Andrew Russo, Co-Founder & Director, National Family Support Network; David Sherman, CEO, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Mountain Region; & Beth Lindley, Director, Kinship Care Resource Center: A Michigan State University School of Social Work Community Program

Moderator: Dr. Anita Rogers, Senior Fellow, Generations United
