Are you a grandparent raising grandchildren? Based on the most recent census data, over 4,000 grandparents in the Northland are living with grandchildren under the age of 18.
Clay County Extension, the Clay County Senior Services, and the Platte County Senior Fund have developed a partnership to help those in just such a situation. If you or someone you know is a grandparent, aunt or uncle raising children, contact the Clay County Extension Center at 816-407-3490 for more details on the “Northland Grandfamilies” program. View the information flyer (PDF) for general monthly support group meeting dates. For a current program flyer, contact 407-3490.
