New York State’s Office of Children and Family Services estimates that 130,000 children in New York. live with a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, or other family member. Some even live with a close family friend. When a family member or close family friend assumes the responsibility of caring for a child, that relationship falls under Kinship Care. St. Catherine's Center for Children has launched a new program to support kinship caregivers in Albany, Schenectady, Greene and Ulster counties. The program aims to connect caregivers to a variety of community and public support services providing children, families and adults with the tools to navigate kinship relationships and tools to succeed.
