Kinship Caregivers & The Hidden Foster Care System
By Creating a Family | September 15, 2021
Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellow Karissa Phelps joins the Creating a Family podcast to discuss kinship caregivers and hidden aspects of the foster care system.
Kinship caregivers (primarily grandparents raising their grandchildren) are often functioning as a shadow foster care system. We talk with Josh Gupta-Kagan, a Professor of Law at the University of South Carolina School of Law and author of America’s Hidden Foster Care System in the Stanford Law Review, and Karissa Phelps, a Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellow at Temple Legal Aid, where she provides legal representation and services to kinship caregivers.
