Caring for Our Own Agency Overviews
Who should attend:
Agency staff, kinship caseworkers, supervisors and agency administrators.
These six–hour overviews are designed specifically to familiarize agency staff with Caring for Our Own,
a kinship/relative caregiver educational support group training program. By attending this overview,
agency staff will understand the benefits of the program and support/promote the program within the agency’s relative caregiver population.
The Overview is also intended to promote caseworker understanding of the benefits of the Caring for Our Own program and, as a result,
to encourage relative caregivers to attend the 9–meeting Caring for Our Own educational support group program.
