Check out this message from Abby Keiser, Director of Family Life Services, about online support available to kinship caregivers during this time of group meeting restrictions.
COBYS is currently offering online Kinship support and educational services.
Are you raising a relative’s child?
Kinship arrangementsare often unanticipated and can result in a range of unique household needs and challenges. Support is available!
Kinship Support Sessions: If you are a Kinship Caregiver raising a relative’s child, you are not alone. There are many kinship caregivers in Lancaster County. Meeting with other grandparents, aunts and uncles who are raising a relative’s child offers valuable support from people that understand the unique challenges that your family is experiencing.
Join us each week on Zoom to check in and talk about topics specific to kinship care and connect with people in similar situations. Unfamiliar to Zoom? We will talk you through the setup! Or you may also join by using your phone.
Please see below for session and workshop dates/times, and to register for the programs.
