Finding fun: Children with the Buncombe County Department of Social Services' Kinship Care program play a game with skaters from the Disney on Ice "Finding Nemo" show at the Asheville Civic Center on Wednesday, Nov. 18. The Kinship Care program supports friends and family members who have stepped up to care for children removed from their homes by DSS. The program keeps the children out of foster care until issues in their home have been resolved. Crystal Drake, a spokeswoman for Disney on Ice, says the program was a good match for outreach performers do in the communities they visit. "This program just seemed special and important."
