The Kinship Treatment Foster Care Initiative Toolkit

The Family Focused Treatment Association (FFTA) is excited to present The Kinship Treatment Foster Care Initiative Toolkit.
In 2013, FFTA began an initiative to promote kinship treatment foster care and to encourage public and private agency dialogue to address the social, emotional and behavioral challenges of children living with kin.
The Kinship Treatment Foster Care Initiative Toolkit is a collection of what we've learned through research, summits, professional expertise, and tried-and-true strategies. It was developed for FFTA members and their public agency partners to be a practical resource to create strategies that will engage and support kin who are caring for children and youth with treatment needs.
