Help for Kinship Caregivers in all of
New York’s 62 Counties
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. 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!
Our County Resources allow kinship caregivers to find resources specific to the county they reside in. Each county displays kinship, legal, aging, youth, and any other services that are available in that county, along with program descriptions and contact information.
The NYS Navigator is excited to celebrate September as Kinship Care Month!
