November 26, 2018

Doug McSwain was featured in a Courier Journal article published Sunday, November 25, 2018.  The article, "Relatives raising kids with little help," highlights Kentucky's rank as the nation's highest rate of grandparents or other relatives raising children. Nine percent of Kentucky children are raised by someone other than a parent, which is 5 percent higher than the national average.  There are two possible ports of hope for financial help, but neither are immediate.  McSwain, along with family court lawyer Richard Dawahare, are taking the state to court for denying eligible relatives pay through Kinship Care or the foster system.
