DC KinCare Alliance works to support relative caregivers who raise DC’s most vulnerable and at-risk children whose parents are not able to care for them for reasons including: incarceration, homelessness, substance use or mental health problem, abuse or neglect, detainment or deportation. We empower relatives to care for these children by providing legal representation, education, and advocacy for the whole family.
