MSW students launch initiative to strengthen NC's kinship care system

In North Carolina, of the nearly 8,300 children in foster care, 25% are in homes where kin (a relative or non-relative family member) have willingly agreed to care for them. However, of this percentage, less than 6%, are living in households where adults have been legally licensed as foster parents. For MSW students Angela Krider, Erin Adams, Alecia Mitiguy and Katie Pollard, the numbers highlight a serious concern, including a need to reform the state’s foster care system.
