    Kinship care is when a child is placed with a relative or friend of the family once removed from biological family.  It is connected with foster care because the removing agency (DFPS) Department of Family Protective Services or (CPS) Child Protective Services goal is to try to keep children with people who are familiar to them if at all possible.
