The number of grandparent and relative caregivers raising children is increasing each year, and our understanding of how to support these caregivers continues to evolve. Legal services programs can play an important role in connecting non-parent caregivers to support. This Legal Basics training will provide law and aging network professionals with an overview of legal issues surrounding non-parent caregivers, including tools and initiatives to support families. Participants will hear from expert speakers about the role of a kinship navigator program and gain insight into forming a state-wide kincare taskforce.

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

Presenters:

  • Gerard Wallace, Esq., Program Director, New York State Kinship Navigator
  • Marvin Okafor, Esq., Attorney, Texas Legal Services Center

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.
