AFKA RIDER

The AFKA Insurance Rider program is designed to assist foster and *kinship caregivers with damage over $10,000.00 (per occurrence) that was caused with intent by a foster/*kinship child in their care. The foster/kinship caregivers must have insurance under their own homeowners or tenants insurance policy, but their insurer is refusing to pay for the damage. The deductible for this plan is $10,000.00.

*For the purposes of accessing AFKA Programs, a *Kinship Caregiver  refers to a kinship caregiver who is an approved placement provider.*
