Short-Term Foster Care —

Kindred Family Focus offers short-term planned relief for families of youth with special needs. Foster parents take these youth into their homes so the youth’s family can take a break from the daily challenges of parenting youth with special needs. This program helps maintain family permanency without out-of-home placement.
