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 of caring 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. Fortunately, we can help!
St. Catherine’s Center for Children has launched 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.
