Kinship care is defined as the full-time nurturing and protection of children by kin or by someone with a significant relationship to the child.
In Colorado, there are more than 80,000 children under the age of 18 living in a grandparent- or other relative-headed household. This represents approximately 7 percent of all Colorado children. Jefferson County recognizes the importance of kinship families in the lives of children.
There are a number of options for financial and medical assistance for kinship care families. Some assistance is temporary and other assistance may continue until a child reaches adulthood. See what is available and apply for kinship relative caretaker benefits.
