Kinship Navigator Programs

Taxonomy Code: PH-2400.4000

Programs that support the ability of kinship caregivers to assure the safety and healthy development of children and youth and help to prevent unnecessary entries into foster care. Kinship caregivers often experience significant challenges and barriers to maintaining their caretaking role including difficulty finding affordable child care and housing, applying for public assistance, or facing challenging family dynamics. Kinship navigators assist kinship caregivers in learning about and accessing programs and resources to meet the needs of the children they are raising, provide help for the family as a whole to safeguard stability, and promote partnerships among public and private agencies. Kinship navigator programs are not intended to provide the services needed by kinship families; rather, they aim to improve caregivers' knowledge of services and assist them in being able to identify and access the services they need.
