Dr. Ahn Receives Grant from Children's Bureau for Kinship Navigator Programs

Associate Professor Haksoon Ahn, PhD, has been awarded over $100,000 in grant funding from the Children’s Bureau through Maryland Department of Human Services to guide Maryland to meet requirements for evidence-based Kinship Navigator Programs.

Kinship Navigator Programs link relative caregivers to a broad range of service and supports to help children. Dr. Ahn’s study will evaluate the current status of the Kinship Navigator program throughout Maryland to inform state practice and policy and the broader child welfare field, and help to guide Maryland towards an evidence-based Kinship Navigator program.
