Kinship Navigator County Collaboration Project Evaluation

This project is a collaborative effort between the New York State Kinship Navigator and CHSR researchers. It is funded by the Administration of Children and Families.


Evaluation & Research

This evaluation consists of a process study to inform program implementation and a quasi-experimental outcome study to assess whether the NYS Kinship Demonstration Project achieved its intended objectives. Specifically, the evaluation will 1) monitor the project implementation at LDSS, Kinship Navigator, and partner agencies; 2) provide ongoing feedback on the process; 3) collect high quality data on the demographics, needs, costs, service utilization, and case-level outcomes; 4) conduct a rigorous outcome evaluation; and 5) disseminate the findings to stakeholders and through publications.
