Online Education

The NYS provides a variety of online learning resources for both caregivers and providers. We have full length videos on Kinship 101, financial assistance options, legal options for caregivers, and a variety of other topics.
Our short video primers are meant to provide succinct information on a specific topic, such as filling out the LDSS application for financial assistance, KinGAP 101, and authorizing medical care.
The NYS Kinship Navigator team continues to provide presentations both in person and remotely. We have presented at local and statewide conferences, local DSS’s, human service agencies, and other agencies that serve kinship families in need.
Our goal is to promote knowledge of kinship care, education to professionals and caregivers, and to promote access to services provided across New York State.
If you would like us to present to your community, please call our help line at 877-454-6463 or email us at
