Good Morning Joey,
One out of seven children are being raised by grandparents and extended family.
The top two reasons are because parents are struggling with drug addiction and/ or
domestic violence. As you can imagine for most grandparents this is extremely challenging,
emotionally, physically and financially. With the support of several local organizations,
Cape Ann YMCA, Pathways, Senior Care, Open Door, and many more we were able to initiate
a support group on Monday nights , 6pm-7:15pm for grandparents . It is drop-in, free, confidential
and the YMCA provides free childcare.
I have attached our flyer in hopes that you will post on “Good Morning Gloucester” and your regular calendar
and of course anywhere else you think is appropriate. Thank you so much for your continuing support
for our community.
