LOCAL RELATIVE SUPPORT GROUPS
Many grandparents or other relatives feel alone in their struggles of raising their grandchildren.
These new emotions can be overwhelming. It is important to know that you are not alone. There
are local support groups that allow participants to share their experiences with those who are in
a similar situation. Support groups can offer a space to work through problems and offer a
network of support to others in your area also raising relatives. Also, support groups can offer
parenting tips and information about programs and services in your area that could benefit you
and your grandchild.
