Kinship Navigator Program

What is Kinship Care?

Kinship is the care for children by relatives or those like relatives due to the disruption of care with their parents. Kinship care offers the child impacted by the separation an opportunity to remain connected to their family and community.

How does the Kinship Navigator Program help?

The Kinship Navigator program supports relative caregivers (i.e. grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.) by offering information, referral and linkage to community resources, as well as follow-up services to help meet the needs of the children they are raising. The goal is to maximize the kinship caregivers’ ability to provide safety and stability and, if needed, permanency for the children in their care. The program also offers a Support Group for kinship caregivers.’
