The Project

The project seeks to bring greater permanency to the lives of children who are being raised by their grandparents or other relatives by connecting families that provide kinship care with pro bono private attorneys who represent them in custody, guardianship and adoption matters in all five boroughs of New York City. While much of our outreach is directed at senior citizens groups, the project serves caregivers of any age. I also conduct presentations at community-based organizations and am a member of the New York City and State kinship task forces.
