Check out these free kinship support groups designed to build perseverance in the midst of commotion.
Grandparent Support Group
Rich Young has facilitated numerous support groups in his thirty years of work in the Human Services field. He and his wife are raising their six-year-old granddaughter, whom they have cared for since she was five months old. Following a three-and-a-half-year journey dealing with DCS, the courts, and the biological parents, they adopted Sebellah in May of 2018. Their goal is to use their own journey to help other grandparents raising their grandchildren.
This free, virtual support group is a safe place to share experiences, connect with other grandparents raising grandchildren, and find helpful resources for your life-changing endeavor.
When: Virtual groups meet every 2nd Tuesday from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm using Zoom.
