Meet HFY Staff Tina Marie Basile
Allow us to introduce Tina Marie Basile, Hope For Youth’s new Permanency Specialist. As the Permanency Specialist, Tina will be tasked with meeting Suffolk County families who are currently caring for their own family members, or kin. Cases will be referred from Suffolk County DSS, and Tina will explore legal, financial, and permanency options for kinship families. Tina will be working to make sure families have the support they need to care for the children in their home and to help families understand their options in Family Court.
Tina was previously a Wendy’s Wonderful Kid Recruiter at Hope For Youth and recently graduated from Georgetown University with her graduate degree in Policy Management. She is excited to be back at HFY, and can’t wait to share her knowledge with Long Island families and children, on their options to permanency.
