Post KLG Counseling Services (PACS) are available to any family that resides in New Jersey and has a kinship child under the age of 21.

Services include family and/or individual therapy, support services, participation in educational meetings and groups.
All Post KLG Counseling Service clinicians specialize in the clinical concerns of kinship legal guardianship including, but not limited to: identity issues; loss and separation; curiosity about origins; and feelings of difference.
