Idaho Relatives As Parents (IRAP) is is a community of grandparents and other family members who are raising a relative’s child. These arrangements are called kinship care placements and may be made formally through a social service agency, but are more frequently arranged without formal intervention, usually occurring when family members voluntarily take the children into their homes to keep them safe in times of family crisis. This arrangement can be challenging from legal, financial, and emotional standpoints. If you are one of the 10,000 kinship care providers in Idaho, you are not alone and there is support available for you in the community. Please view the following videos.
