Kinship Navigator Program
A Good Idea
Kinship Navigator is a statewide program operated by Catholic Family Center to help grandparents, relatives and other non-parent caregivers who provide full-time care for children in their home. The program assists these caregivers with navigating the legal, financial, educational and social support systems in their communities. Resources include a comprehensive website, fact sheets, county guides, forums, and kinship specialists available through a toll-free number.
Goal / Mission
The program aims to provide information and resources to kinship caregivers (grandparents, relatives, foster parents, and others) in New York State.
Results / Accomplishments
Thirteen regional programs provide direct services to twenty-three counties.
