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!
