Kinship Support Groups

Kinship Support Groups meet in a casual and welcoming environment, offering education and support to grandparents who are raising grandchildren. Grandparents have the opportunity to meet other caregivers, develop a network of support, and receive information about resources and services available.

Meetings are currently held on various Tuesdays (see schedule below) at Lake Elementary in Millbury, Rossford Elementary, and Crim Elementary in Bowling Green.  Free dinner and child care are provided.  RSVP's are requested in advance to plan for dinner and childcare workers, but are not required for attendance.
