Grandma's Kids

The Grandma’s Kids program targets children in kinship placement, informal care and foster care who are primarily grandparents raising their grandchildren. However, we also serve children who are low-income, at-risk of violence and disparities that can mitigate their academic progress. The Grandma’s Kids after-school program focuses on the student via homework and academic support as well as providing social-emotional support through an SEL program for violence prevention. Social work interns facilitate the curriculum on a weekly basis. Our goal is to support children on their journey toward their academic success.
