The Texas Kincare Taskforce, housed within the Health Law Program at TLSC, provides access to free legal counseling to address relative caregivers’ questions. The Project supplies caregivers with legal tools and advice to navigate the healthcare, human services and school systems for minor children in their care.
The people at Kincare Taskforce work to accurately refer grandparents, aunts, uncles, and older siblings who are raising minor children (with neither parent being in the home), to appropriate sources of on-going assistance. The Texas Kincare Taskforce has prepared the Texas Kincare Primer to inform families headed by relatives of their rights and responsibilities as well as provide helpful information.
