Specific Services

NYAP provides services to both kinship caregivers and kinship youth from birth to 18 years old, and kinship youth with special needs up to age 22.  We specialize in providing support services to families with youth between the ages of 11-17 that will help to address their unique needs.

Who We Serve

NYAP's KINnet program provides kinship families with a centralized service point of entry which ensures that they are linked with and receive services that promote safety, permanency, and the well-being of children and youth and prevent children from entering the child welfare system.    

 

Through effective service delivery and treatment, we provide support to relative and non-relative caregivers by helping families access necessary services, expand family support systems, educate caregivers on the issues many of the youth are experiencing, assist youth in overcoming their own personal obstacles, and ultimately reduce stress to promote family stability.  

We’re here for our kinship families, foster parents, youth and families, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  You can call us anytime at 1-877-NYAP-CAN (1.877.692.7226) if you need support, information, guidance or just to ask a general question.

When you need us, we’re here for you.

NYAP’s Kinship program provide services required to maintain a stable home for Kinship Families in which a child or children are being raised by a kinship caregiver because the biological parent(s) are unable to do so. Services offered to children and families provide advocacy, service coordination and support for families providing Kinship Care and Non-Relative Care to child victims of dysfunctional home environments.

  • Needs driven - as defined by the family;

  • Culturally relevant and non-judgmental - to assure that differences are not ignored;

  • Team developed and supported -  it takes a lot of people to help a family grow strong;

  • Outcomes focused and driven;

  • Flexible and individualized - both in terms of content and style for every family served;

It is NYAP's vision that by providing Kinship families with these services , we will reduce the risk of abuse and neglect, family dysfunction and family violence all of which are factors documented to increase the risk of drug abuse, teen pregnancy, school failure and violence.  The focus on empowering and strengthening kinship families so that they can emancipate themselves from public support systems and achieve independence keeping the youth in their home is the underlying long-term goal of the program.
