You 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.
