Webinar on Support Groups for Kin and Grandparent Caregivers

November 6, 2023

Thursday, November 16, 2023 | 2:00-3:30 PM ET

Register for the webinar.

Join the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network: A National Technical Assistance Center for the webinar “Support Groups: Recruiting, Retention, and Everything in Between.” This webinar is part of a series provided by the ACL-funded Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network, which is led by Generations United.

Many grandparents and other kin embark on the caregiving journey with little time to plan. They receive little to no financial help, and all too frequently, little to no guidance on how to navigate a complex array of social services that vary depending on location. For many, grandfamily support groups are a lifeline, a place where they feel understood and can benefit from the lived experiences of others.

In this webinar, Kathy Kinsner, senior parenting resources manager at ZERO TO THREE, and Dawn Davenport, executive director of Creating A Family, will describe the advantages of support groups and identify topics that might be included during group meetings. They’ll explore how to recruit and retain participants; schedule and structure in-person or online groups; and create an environment where all feel safe, seen, and welcomed. The webinar will include links to free or low-cost resources to get you started or to help you enhance what you already offer.
