Kith.care was created specifically for helping families where a traditional child care center or a private nanny isn’t an option, but there is a family member who can act as a caretaker.
Approved caretakers will be paid $25 per child / day
(a day of care must be at least 4 hours to qualify).
All Kith.care applications start with the parents. Once a parent has been approved, they can invite you through the Kith.care platform as long as you are related to the child. Once you’ve been invited by a parent, you will receive a text with a link to apply.

DHS reviews and issues a decision about your application.
If approved, you’ll be asked to set up your banking information for direct deposit.
You will receive your first timesheet on the Friday after your caretaker approval.
