Kinship Care, because you care.
Sometimes, things don’t work out at home for a child.
New York State’s Office of Children and Family Services estimates that some 130,000 children around the state 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 to care for a child, that’s called Kinship Care.
Perhaps you are a kinship care provider, or know someone who is. If you are, you do it for all the right reasons. Because you care.
St. Catherine’s Center for Children is launching a new program to support kinship caregivers in Albany, Schenectady, Greene and Ulster Counties. The program will connect caregivers like you to a variety of community and public support services, providing you with the tools you need to succeed.
