    • Abstract:
      The article presents information on a study that determines the similarities and differences in child and caregiver demographics and service needs. The study focuses on a sample of kinship caregivers, compiled through almost three years of hands-on practice, and includes families served by the KIDS'n'KIN Program from December 1992 to August 1995. The study demonstrates that kinship care families that are coping outside the public child welfare system are strikingly similar to those who have been accepted into it as foster parents.
