This program provides information for Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles raising children.


PictureBeing a parent again is not easy.  There are many issues to deal with:

  • The Legal System
    • Custody
    • Guardianship
    • Adoption
  • The child’s parents
  • Funds for child care
  • Homework
  • After school activities
  • Stress
  • Health Insurance
  • Finding time for YOU

If you ever said I wish. . .

  • I knew how to make it all work.
  • I knew how to get help with some of these problems.
  • I were not so stressed out.
  • I knew how to help these children.
  • I had someone to talk to.

PictureYou Are Not Alone

A Kinship Care Meeting is a place to stop and take a breath and try to gain control over the situation in which you find yourself.  It is a safe place to share experiences with other Grandparents and Relatives raising children; a place where you learn from each other and find out about programs for which you and the children may be eligible.  Meetings are free, no reservations required. Call 770-538-2650 to confirm meeting schedule.
