Supporting Relative Caregivers

DC KinCare Alliance seeks to achieve a future where all DC children live in a safe and stable home.

We work to support caregivers who raise DC’s most vulnerable and at-risk children (usually grandparents or other relatives) whose parents are not able to care for them.

Parents may be incarcerated, homeless, have a substance use or mental health problem, abuse or neglect their children, or have been detained or deported.

We respect and empower relatives to care for at-risk DC children by providing:

  • Legal representation
  • Information and education
  • Advocacy
You can now apply for a caregiver subsidy!
