Our aim is to support grandmothers, grandfathers, and Kinship families to maintain or re-establishing family ties. Here you will find some answers to frequently asked questions concerning legal and health issues, as well as practical help for those Kin raising children and grandchildren.

Angel Tree Ministries

We would like to thank Angel Tree for sponsoring ALL of our children to summer camp this year as well as covering the cost of ALL the food. They really are ANGELS!!!

Approximately 62,500 children are being raised by Kin in Canada. Most of these children are being raised by a grandmother or aunt who is retired with very low income. There is very little in the way of support for these children, many of which have suffered neglect and abuse. There is even less support for the Kin caregivers. However, private and corporate donations are now being accepted to help support children attending this year's camping event.

NEW Join On-Line - You can now pay for your new membership, or even renew your membership on-line. Our members come from all walks of life and are committed to helping each other through encouragement, support and the sharing of information.

If you are looking for a group close to home, check our 'Find a Support Group' page. Volunteers are always welcome.
