Kinship Navigator

The Kinship Navigator program serves relatives across 13 counties in Region 1 South Washington.  Kinship Navigators assist relatives in providing a safe, stable and nurturing environment for the children in their care by linking families to a range of community resources such as health, financial and legal services, support groups and emergency funds.


There are two Kinship Navigators in Region 1 South, one of which is bi-lingual.  Kinship Navigator services can be accessed by contacting Catholic Family & Child Service in Richland, WA or Yakima, WA or through a referral made to the program from the Department of Health and Social Services.
