PSS/WSF Grandparent Family Apartments — 2015 Programs of D
Presbyterian Senior Services has been a pioneering leader of kinship services since the early 1990’s when it held support groups at its senior centers for grandparents raising grandchildren.
Its innovative PSS/WSF Grandparent Family Apartments, one of the first residences for kinship families, opened in 2005.
With the Grandparent Family Apartments as its hub, PSS now provides kinship caregiver services in three boroughs of NYC.
Their success is because PSS has programs that support both the grandparents and the grandchildren: from “Parenting a Second Time Around” training for grandparents to the Young Adult Success Program (YASP) for kinship youth.
