Kinship

Orange County

Olive Crest’s goal is to provide services that strengthen families and encourage their success. Kinship Support Services offers support to relatives raising a relative’s children. If you are a grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling, extended family member, or family friend who is raising your relative’s child, and you live in Orange County, support and resources are available to you.

Our Kinship Program Offers

Support Groups and Workshops

Provide opportunities for education, recreation, and support in various group settings to empower relative caregivers, build positive connections and strengthen kinship families.

Case Management Services

Relative care advocates work closely with kinship families who may be at risk for disruption by developing an individual service plan focused on addressing specific service needs. (Advocates provide connections to community to offer legal help, respite care, and individual and family counseling.)

Relative Care Mentors

Olive Crest offers experienced relative caregivers who are available to offer valuable insight, guidance, and support to relative caregivers through the sharing of personal experiences on an individual or group basis.
