Help Spread the Word About the KinConnector Program

As the Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children continues to serve on the Kinship Navigator Oversight Committee, they are pleased to report initial successes with the Department of Human Services’ (DHS) KinConnector Program!

In August alone, the toll-free hotline received more than 140 calls from kin caregivers providing loving homes and basic needs to children who cannot be with their biological parents. Through the program, caregivers connect with compassionate KinConnectors and receive guidance applying for federal, state, and local benefits such as CHIP, Social Security and other services, as well as training and parenting support.

The program was only recently implemented, so please join us and help spread the word by sharing this newly released KinConnector brochure from DHS.
