It’s All Relative

Supportive training for extended family members, friends, and kin of children who have been removed from their homes


On average, 33% of children in the foster care system live with a licensed extended relative.

When a child is removed from the home and enters foster care, it can often be overwhelming for everyone who knows the child—aunts, uncles, grandparents, mom, dad, and even close family friends. Who will take care of the child? How will the other relatives feel?

The Long Road Toward Family Restoration

When a child is removed from family and placed in foster care, relatives begin a long journey of care and concern.

Some may welcome the child into their home, while others don’t know how to respond. They’re at a loss as to what their role is in such a situation or what they can do—if anything. They may feel isolated, intensely sad, or concerned about what will happen next.

It’s All Relative is a three-part webinar series for any relative or friend who is looking for their next steps after a child is removed from the home. Feeling shock at removal is normal for most extended family members, teachers, coaches and mentors. Hearing from other families who have experienced similar pain prepares them for the difficult process ahead.
