About 1.8 million children live with relatives instead of their parents, an arrangement known as "kinship care." Most kinship care takes place outside of the child welfare system, and these families are not known to child welfare. However, over the past decade, child welfare agencies have been increasingly relying on relatives to act as foster parents.

This transcript of a panel discussion focuses on how and when child welfare agencies should use relatives to act as foster parents. It also centers on how, if at all, child welfare agencies should treat kinship care differently than non-kin foster care; and how can government provide greater support to all types of kinship care without providing unintended incentives for the parents to relinquish the care of their children.
