Meet Angie and Jah

Angie came to the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program when she found herself raising her grandson due to a difficult family situation. 


Angie’s past had been very difficult and she, herself, had suffered a great deal of trauma.She did not want her grandson to experience the same hardships that she and her children had in the past.


Happy Mother's Day

Today is Mother’s Day. During these unprecedented times, I think we could all use a reason to celebrate the amazing women in our lives!

For many moms, these times have been even more challenging as they have taken on new roles - homeschooling their children, tending to daily household tasks, and for many mothers, also working from home.

We're All In This Together

These are indeed uncertain times.

No one could have predicted that a pandemic would rise up and affect so many lives in a matter of weeks.

Most organizations do not plan for a pandemic and its ripple effects on the economy. We are in uncharted waters as these circumstances affect the globe, not just our community.
