Our Helping Hands Kinship Support Services Program works with San Bernardino County Children and Family Services (CFS) by lending a helping hand to relative caregivers and non-relative extended family members, also known as kin caregivers. We offer these families the help and support they need to stay together as a family. Through kinship placements, families are maintained, traditions upheld, and children move less and experience fewer behavioral, educational and health problems. Our services are designed to combat the isolation, stress and other struggles kinship families encounter in their day-to-day lives.
We provide the following services:
Assessment and case management
Basic needs assistance
Family activities & recreation
Youth life skills education
Volunteer recruitment & coordination
Information and Referrals
Dental & Vision
Other Services as needed
Additional services are developed or referrals made in response to the individual needs of the caregivers and kin-children.
