Community-Based Support for Kinship Caregivers

Are you interested in meeting other kinship caregivers in your community? Regional Area Agency on Aging offer support groups for kinship caregivers and can provide referrals to services across the state.

Kinship Support groups provide education and peer support regarding grandparents raising grandchildren, positive parenting, effective discipline and healthy relationships.



Where can I find other organizations that provide support to grandparents and other caregivers?
A wide range of nonprofits are also dedicated to the improvement of the quality of life of caregivers and the children in their care. The services provided range from physical and mental health to support groups and a friendly ear willing to listen.
