Grandparents as Parents

In Knox County, approximately 260,000 adults, many over the age of 65, are raising their grandchildren. CAC will enhance its current support group programs for grandparents to include night groups which will offer additional features not available in the daytime. The Training curriculum will include legal, financial, behavioral health, safety, and educational issues. Additionally, a resource guide and training module, Guide for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren will be published, marketed, and distributed.
