We can help!
The NYS Kinship Navigator is an
information, referral and advocacy program for kinship
caregivers in New York State. A kinship caregiver is an
individual that is caring for a child that is not biologically
their own. In New York State, there are an estimated 179,000
caregivers, 131,000 of whom are grandparents raising
grandchildren. Many others are aunts and uncles.
The Navigator seeks to assist these caregivers by providing
information on financial assistance, legal information and
referrals, and other types of issues that caregivers face when
raising children in order to provide stability and permanency
in the home. Call us today for more information!

The world lost a great treasure when Maya Angelou passed
away last May. Raised for many years by her father's
mother, Annie Henderson, Maya was one of our great Kinship Hall
of Famers. While I mourned her passing along with everyone
else, it reminded how much I enjoyed reading about her
grandmother and the stories of Maya's upbringing by that strong
and powerful woman.
