I am Arnetta Washington, the Kinship Care Coordinator for the Low Country. I have been employed with SCDSS for 14 years. Kinship Care holds a special place in my heart. I’m still a firm believer that “It Takes A Village” and having relatives and/or fictive kin along with our agency and community to step up in a family’s time of need is what a Real Village is all about. (Multiple people coming together, for one common goal!) My hopes are that we can obtain/provide more resources and financial support for our Kinship Families, while being just as supportive to the staff. SC is a Kin First state therefore, we will continue to strive to keep our children with Familiar FACES in Familiar PLACES. #KinshipCare
