GrandFamily Resource Center

The GrandFamily Resource, a program of SOWN, provides parenting education workshops, sharing of resources, individual counselling and on-going support for grandparents, and other relatives, raising the children. The groups meet weekly in the community and on the phone. The GrandFamily Resource Center also helps grandparents gain more skill utilizing tablet technology with our iConnect program. We are also planning to start an intergenerational literacy program in the spring of 2019. For information about all our programs please contact Arlene Segal at 215-487-3000 ext. 11 or asegal@sown.org.
