Resources for Children and Families

Relative Caregiver Support Group

Families are no longer your traditional or nuclear families. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Sisters, Brothers, etc are now raising children that they did not plan on raising. You may have not planned your life to turn out this way and now you need to provide care to a child that is not your own child. There are challenges with being a parent as times have changed. Teenagers have different issues than you may recall. You may struggle with daycare. You may struggle getting a hold of the school or it may be difficult for you to know who to contact regarding the child’s health insurance. 

This Support Group focuses on valuable resources for yourself and the child in your care. It also provides support from others who may be in the same situation as you. This group may help you to balance your life again or to socialize with individuals who may be of support to you. 

We began this support group in February 2022 and have gained some valuable resources and have learned many aspects of raising children in a relative home.
