Through collaborative efforts of The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina and Representative Joshua Putnam, Governor McMaster has signed South Carolina’s Kinship Care Bill into law!
Act 146 (Bill H.3701) does the following:
1) Requires Kinship Care providers to be made aware of their right and benefits of being licensed.
2) Creates a faster path to being licensed, while also protecting children.
3) Improves reporting, with the goal of providing actionable data to help better understand the hurdles preventing Kinship Care Providers from being licensed.
