    • Abstract:
      The article presents information related to the Kinship Care Task Force that identifies the issues associated with the kinship care families involved in the child welfare system in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The task force comprised two representatives each from the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare. The Task Force membership has been broadened to include representatives from education, mental health, and a senior legal advocacy group. It examines the supports needed for any relative who provides care to a child who has been a victim of abuse or neglect.
