Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS), in partnership with other Fairfax County departments and agencies offers services and programs for grandparents and other family members raising children in the place of a parent.
Kinship care is increasing as a result of family challenges, including military responsibilities, serious physical illness, financial difficulties, serious mental illness, substance abuse, incarceration, child abuse and neglect, AIDS, domestic violence, and the death of the child’s parent.
The KinCare Fact Sheet provides important information and resources for grandparents and other relatives raising children in Fairfax County, Virginia. Check out the Fairfax County Government / Department of Family Services (DFS) new Kinship Care web page at: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dfs/kinship/ .
