Child Welfare, n75 n5 p567-82 Sep-Oct 1996
Presents a framework for assessing kinship homes that differs from traditional family foster home evaluation due to the differences between kinship homes and those of other prospective foster parents. Argues that distinctive criteria for approving placement of children in kinship homes are needed in the areas of home evaluation before placement and home evaluation for permanent placement.
