The Grandparents Parenting Grandchildren/Relative Caregivers group meets monthly on a Saturday. This program is FREE and childcare is available. Please contact The Grapevine for more information or to join this group.
Nationwide 7.8 million children are being raised by grandparents and other relative caregivers (Generations United) and not without a host of challenges and issues that come with the job, including mixed emotions, financial burdens, health concerns and keeping pace with the children. Join us for a discussion on the joys and challenges grandparents face, hear from other grandparents/relative caregivers and learn about some of the resources and supports available.
Our staff have completed the UMaine Certificate in Grandfamilies Leadership and have been involved with the Grandparents/Relative Caregivers Group for a number of years. We are available to support you by listening, sharing resources, connecting you with other parenting relatives, etc. Contact us to talk.
