    As kinship care continues to be a primary and valuable option for children who cannot live with their parents, emphasis on kinship care policy, practice, and research is necessary to continue to enhance services and supports for kinship caregivers and families. This conference highlights our collective knowledge ofbest practice, policy, program and service development, and identifies areas for further research. This year’s conference will take place on September 17-19, 2014 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in New Orleans, LA.
