The monthly Kinship Care Support Group meets from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.Monday, May 13 at Family Strengths Network, 3540 Orange Street.
Facilitator for the group is Lori Padilla, a licensed therapist and grandparent who is raising a grandchild.
Please RSVP by 9 a.m. Monday so that FSN can plan accordingly for the dinner portion of the group meeting and for childcare if needed. Childcare is provided at no cost.
Statistics show that more than ever grandparents are the sole care providers for their grandchildren. The reasons behind raising a grandchild vary, but many of the -challenges are the same.
Join this kinship support group to connect with others who are navigating the unexpected challenges of raising a grandchild and to learn about resources that can help you meet those challenges. Although, this group is geared to grandparents, any family that finds themselves in the world of kinship care is welcome to attend.
The group meets on the second Monday of every month. For registration and more information, call 505.662.4515 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
