Caregiver Support Team

Guiding You Through Every Challenge

Navigating the caregiving landscape can be overwhelming. AFKA offers multifaceted assistance, encompassing networking events, systemic navigation, and guidance during complex resolutions. We ensure you have the tools and support to confidently continue your caregiving journey.

Extended Property Insurance

Guarding Against Unforeseen Damages

Caring for a child brings unforeseen challenges. The AFKA Extended Property Insurance program backs foster and kinship caregivers when unexpected damages arise in your home. If a child in your care causes damage exceeding $10,000, and your insurance denies the claim, we’ve got you covered.

Legal Assistance

Protecting Caregivers in Legal Challenges

Facing legal challenges can be daunting, especially when they concern the well-being of a child in your care. As an AFKA member, you gain access to our Legal Assistance program, providing crucial support and financial assistance if faced with a criminal charge as a caregiver. Ensure your rights and those of the children you protect are defended.

AFKA Bursary

Fueling Educational Dreams

The AFKA Bursary is dedicated to assisting former youth in care and biological children from foster and kinship homes in their pursuit of higher education. This bursary specifically aims to support these young individuals, providing financial aid to help ease the burden of educational expenses and fostering their academic ambitions.
