prizes and raffles. All net proceeds

KSSP is a Lilliput program in Sacramento County that supports kin
- grandparents and other family members - raising relative children when the
birth parents are not able to do so.
- served nearly 2,500 kinship caregivers & children
in past 6 years
- only program of its kind in Sacramento County
- find and connect children with relatives when they
first enter foster care
- facilitated over 150 kin placements in Sacramento
- ensure children stay safe with their extended
family and do not enter non-relative foster care
- will serve 750 more caregivers and children in 2014
The typical kinship family in Sacramento County is a single, African
American grandmother in her 50s or 60s raising multiple grandchildren on a
fixed, limited income which is at or below the federal poverty level.
Without the supports that we can provide, these families are at great risk
of disruption which would result in the children entering or re-entering
non-relative foster care. If separated from their birth family, it is
incredibly hard for children to find their way back. Since November 2007, we
have served nearly 1,500 kinship caregivers and children in the greater
Sacramento area. We expect to serve nearly 750 more caregivers and children
Thank you for caring about those in need in our community.
