AZGA Leaders Work for Proclamations Declaring September as Kinship Care Month

| August 23, 2015

AZGA Leaders across the state, from Tucson to Phoenix, have been working hard to have September proclaimed at the state and local levels as Kinship Care Month.

This is a well-deserved opportunity to hold events that acknowledge the tremendous contributions of kinship families and to provide outreach to the kinship community. It is also an opportunity to educate policy makers. There is a great need for more programs and policies that support children being raised in kinship families, especially informal kinship families.

AZGA members picOn September 1st, AZGA will host events in both the Phoenix and Tucson areas with elected officials who will declare September as Kinship Month in their cities.
