Welcome 2017!

Happy New Year from the NYS Kinship Navigator!  We are excited to continue serving our hardworking caregivers in NYS – at last estimate, over 200,000 kinship families are currently residents of NYS.  In 2017, we look forward to providing you with the same services you have come to rely on – access to a kinship specialist via phone Monday-Friday, an expanding web site with more resources – both locally and in terms of educational fact sheets, and other ways to access our program – via video primers, live chat feature, forums, and of course, email access.

We also look forward to expanding our educational outreach – our regional navigators are ready to present to your teams and co-workers on what KN can offer, and look forward to assisting you in engaging kinship families on your caseload.  Call us at 877-454-6463 for more information!

If you, or someone you know, is currently raising a child in a kinship setting, please feel free to connect with us – we are happy to assist!
