"Grandparents and Other Relatives Raising Children"
When family steps in to raise children, it can be a rewarding experience, as it maintains stability and permanency for the child, all while preserving the connection to their family. However, while relatives may be willing to step in and care for these children, doing so can often present unexpected difficulties.
Through respecting what is special and unique to each family, providing accurate information on existing, available resources, and providing educational information on a variety of topics, the Family Ties program seeks to further strengthen the committed and caring relatives' abilities to maintain supportive and stable environments for these children.
Join us for an opportunity to communicate with other relative caregivers by sharing stories, insights, and struggles that come with raising relative children, as well as to catch up on the latest parenting information and other special topics.
