The Kinship Caregiver Program at Catholic Charities supports caregivers from all cultural and faith backgrounds who are raising relatives' children due to circumstances such as the death of illness of the biological parents, incarceration or drug abuse. The program offers monthly support groups, fun family events and special trainings to families in the following five counties: Denver, Arapahoe, Jefferson, Adams and Douglas. Also provides referrals or connections to other programs and agencies based upon availability and eligibility. The Catholic Charities Kinship Care Program is free for caregivers providing at least 51% of the care of a relative's child.
Caregivers wishing to attend the monthly support groups should contact Carrie Savage (720-799-9254) or Kerry Lutz (720-799-9253) for availability and location information.
