    • Abstract:
      The article presents information on the complexity of kinship foster care related to child welfare in the United States. The growing number of abused, neglected and dependent children is the key area to be addressed by the child welfare administrators, policymakers and the public. A research suggests that the children in kinship foster care remain in state custody longer and are less likely to be returned home or adopted than children in the care of nonrelatives. Several nonprofit organizations contracted the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services to take of children who are removed from their homes because of abuse, or dependency to their families.
