Families today are not as traditional as they used to be. Many children are raised by grandparents or other close relatives as a surrogate parent, for various reasons. This new family structure presents many challenges and stressors; generational differences, financial burdens, issues of stamina, to name a few. You’re not alone! Gather with other grandparents raising grandchildren for support. Learn new strategies and parenting skills, gain peer support, and find new resources and the tools you need in this new parenting role. JFCS offers two different groups at two different locations!
Grandparents/Relative Resource Group has new dates and a new location:
Wednesday: February 22, March 28, April 25, May 23
Main Public Library301 York Street, Centennial Room (lower Level)
Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group meets at JFCS, 2821 Klempner Way, every third Monday at 2 p.m.
CallÂ Jo Ann Kalb at (502) 452-6341 ext. 335 to RSVP or if you need further information on either group.
