  • Relatives can play an important role when a child and/or parent is in need of assistance

    The National Staff of NFAT has been working on the Graphics and Text for the  proposed document on children entering and exiting Foster  Care.  However, we believe that just  giving the percentages  is not enough to tell the whole story for

Our Families, Our Children, Our Future.

But, since each family is a unique as the individual involve, it is ONE Family at a time and ONE Child at a time..

Children placed with a relative after being removed from their home for maltreatment have fewer behavioral
     and social skills problems than children in foster care, but may have a higher risk for substance use and
      pregnancy as teenagers, according to a new study.

Current Development

The first survey created is related directly to parents, in your state. The Relative~Kinship Care Survey, is perhaps the Second Step, when a child needs care?

Suggested Common Concern*

"We are joining forces with all persons affected by Parens Patriae to include parents, extended family, foster parents and father's and mother's rights groups. While this is a difficult endeavor due to various divisions, the focus will be on challenging the system with the unified goals and commonalities that each is suffering under in family courts and through Child Protective Agencies and other related Groups."

(See Definition: Parens Patriae)
