Kinship Center Coming to South L.A.

16 Feb Kinship Center Coming to South L.A.

South L.A. relative caregivers scored a major victory recently when the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services announced its decision to open a Kinship Service Center in South L.A., which has a high concentration of children being raised by their relatives. At a recent forum, a longtime relative caregiver with Community Coalition, Wanda Enix said, “This has been a ten year battle for me. We need to keep pushing DCFS.” Relative caregivers like Enix have been urging DCFS to provide more programs—especially mental health services to kinship families—and to bring those programs closer to where clients live.
