Support group for grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and others, who are raising the child(ren) of a relative.

We are a peer support group for grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and others who are raising the children of a relative.

GrandFamilies are households that are headed by grandparents or other relatives who are sharing their home with nieces, nephews, grandchildren or other related children. This is a new program. Childcare is provided. Legal and financial topics are presented in some of the sessions, while other sessions provide a chance for participants to discuss problems and challenges in their daily lives. We do plan to have time for general discussion among participants and will have guest speakers on some evenings to discuss various topics of interest. The group meets alternate Wed. evenings at the Government Services Center on Westtown Rd. in West Chester. The Chester County GrandFamilies group includes several children’s groups for ages 2 – 18 on the same evenings that the adults meet.
