This guide to creating a kin first culture was developed  in 2017 based on input gathered from a convening of nine jurisdictions - Connecticut, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Washington, and Wisconsin, as well as several key national kinship organizations - the ABA Center on Children and the Law, ChildFocus and Generations United, with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation. 


This tool was created to foster the development of a kin first culture, defined as a child welfare system that consistently promotes kinship placement, helps children in foster care maintain connections with their family, and tailors services and supports for kinship foster families. This wikiHow includes the seven fundamental steps to creating a kin first culture and accompanying tools to implement the steps.
