- The Office of Healthy Aging (OHA) has awarded a grant to The Village for RI Foster and Adoptive Families, in collaboration with The Heart Tree, to reach out to kinship families in RI, with a special emphasis on Kinship Caregivers ages 55 plus.
- The goal of the project is to connect Kinship Caregivers with available resources and supports both locally and nationally. Statistics show that 14% of all youth in care in RI are in unsupported relative placements. This project will provide Kinship Caregivers with information and resources to help them feel supported and connected as they navigate life during these sometimes-challenging times.

This project is supported by a grant from the RI Office of Healthy Aging through funding from the U.S. Administration for Community Living, Department of Health and Human Services.
