When we work together, we form bonds with others and strengthen our relationships with younger generations. This twice monthly support group is for people who are raising or assisting in raising their grandchildren, and for other relatives who provide support. Raising grandchildren presents unique “parenting” issues and we can provide support and direct grandparents to community resources. Topics discussed are legal issues, health care issues, family conflict, and much more.
Thanks to Generations Area Agency on Aging, one of the funders that make it possible for us to facilitate and support Grandparents that are raising their grandchildren. Visit http://milestonesaaa.org/
PLEASE NOTE: As a result of COVID-19, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Group is not holding in-person support groups. We are calling group participants by telephone and planning virtual group meetings. Please call Diana at the Y for more information. We will begin meeting again in-person as soon as we can safely do so.
Several restrictions and changes are in place in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe.
Most of those changes have been noted in our Program Guide. Click here for the most up-to-date information.
