kinship caregivers - relatives as parents

  • This group brings together grandparents and other relatives who are raising their grandchildren or other family members. It is a time to discuss struggles and celebrations in a safe, supportive environment. The gathering is facilitated by a licensed social worker and licensed parenting educator.

    The Kinship Caregivers group is FREE, including a free meal and free childcare. This group gathers once a month September-May (day varies) from 6:00-7:30 pm at Cokato Elementary.
