WhimSpire realizes and values the importance of kinship care for children in the child welfare system. Kinship care can often be important to the wellbeing of children in the long run as it helps to maintain children’s family connections over the life span. WhimSpire works closely with several counties in Colorado to provide support to kinship families through certification. Once kinship families are certified they receive in home support, training, and a care stipend. WhimSpire will continue to guide the family through the duration of the case. WhimSpire also works with counties to provide home studies for kin families that may not meet the certification requirements.
