In honor of National Kinship Care Month this September, PAFCAF is highlighting kinship caregivers across our social media, blog and weekly newsletters. Below is a story from one of our very own member executive directors who is also a kinship care provider.  

Christina Wilson, executive director of Child Abuse Prevention Association, became a caregiver in 2003 when her mother and aunt called to let her know that her cousin’s two children had been placed in foster care and that her cousin was also pregnant with a third.
