The purpose of this study is to improve our understanding of kinship caregivers’ parenting experiences, particularly those not involved with the public child welfare system. The knowledge obtained in this study may be utilized in designing and implementing a service delivery model for children in kinship placements and their caregivers in the future. The questionnaire includes questions on kinship caregivers’ demographic information and kin care experiences. It also has items on kinship caregivers’ knowledge and/or thoughts on behavioral and educational experiences of the related children they care for. The survey will be anonymous, thus not collecting any identifying information. Results from the study will be reported in an aggregated format, and data will be destroyed upon the completion of the study.
