      Kinship Care - Legal Guardianship Program

      This service assists caregivers who want to make a legal commitment to the child/children in their care. For more information, call toll-free: 2-1-1.

      To obtain legal guardianship, the caregivers must have been:
      a.) caring for a child for at least one year; b.) willing to be responsible for the child until age 18 (21 if the child is disabled). Caregivers who have legal guardianship may also be eligible for a subsidy.

      Note: The Kinship Navigator Program differs from the services provided by the state Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS) which formally places a child with a relative for care. If you are caring for a relative who was placed with you by DYFS and the case is active, contact your DYFS caseworker to find out what services might be available. However, if your DYFS case is closed, you may be eligible for Kinship Navigator services.
