Relative Home Assessment Services (RHAS) is centered on the state of California’s Resource Family Approval (RFA) Program, which combines and streamlines elements of foster parent licensing, relative approval, adoption and guardianship processes. Guardians of Love’s RHAS program provides rapid, comprehensive services to relatives and non-related extended family members (NREFMs) residing in the West and South Los Angeles regions.

29% of the children in the foster care system are

living in a relative's home.

When a child is placed within the foster system, typically biological family or kinship placement is sought for them. What many people don’t realize is that a kinship placement does not always have to be a relative.

Sometimes kinship care can be provided by a close family friend or a child’s teacher, for example. Anyone who has a relationship with the child and his or her family can be considered a kinship placement.
