The Shaylee Foundation provides resources to kinship caregivers to support the safety of the children in a more permanent home.
We envision a world where all children are provided with safe, loving, and nurturing environments when placed with other close family members.
Kinship care, as it’s commonly called, refers to caregiver grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, adult siblings, and even family friends. September is Kinship Care Month kinship families and recognizes their importance.
Abuse and neglect are forms of maltreatment of a child. They can be caused by inflicting harm or by failing to act to prevent harm. Children may be abused in a family or in an institutional or community setting, by those known to them or, much more rarely, by a stranger. They may be abused by an adult or adults, or another child or children.
This may include physical abuse, sexual abuse, and emotional abuse.
Neglect is the failure to meet a child's basic physical and/or psychological needs. This may come in the form of failing to provide shelter to a child, failing to protect a child from harm, failure to provide adequate watch over the child, and failure to provide the child with medical needs.
