Description

The Ohio Statewide Kinship Care Coalition presented by the Ohio Grandparent Kinship Coalition (OGKC) and the Ohio Federation for Health Equity and Social Justicewill host a Statewide Kinship Conference in Columbus, Ohio on Friday, September 20, 2019 and Saturday, September 21, 2019. Many Ohio children are fortunate to be cared for by kinship caregivers when their own parents are unable or unavailable to care for them. Kinship caregivers may be relatives, such as grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, older siblings, as well as non-relative caregivers. About 100,000 grandparents are currently raising their grandchildren in Ohio currently.

The goal of the OGKC conference is to provide information and awareness to attorneys, social workers, service providers, caregivers and anyone who in interested in issues facing Ohio's kinship caregivers, including how to deal with trauma and legal issues relating to kinship placements.

Continental Breakfast and Lunch will be provide both days. The OGKC is currently working on providing childcare arrangements. Please continue to check this page for updates.
