    • Abstract:
      Researchers have raised concerns about the adequacy of the training and services for foster families in general and kinship families in particular. This study examines the training and services received by kinship and nonkinship family foster caregivers. The article compares kinship and nonkinship caregivers in terms of an array of training and services. The authors examine the demographic characteristics of these two groups and the problems of the foster children placed with them to better understand their needs. Consistent with previous research, levels of training and services received were inadequate for both groups. Contrary to previous research, few differences between kinship and nonkinship caregivers were found in training or services, in demographic characteristics, or in foster children's problems.
