TEXAS GRANDPARENTS RAISING GRANDCHILDREN

Did you know that there are over 300,000 children in foster care in the State of Texas? For every one child in foster care, there are 18 more placed under kinship, usually with a grandparent or older relative.  The Texas Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, TXGPG is a support group where this unique group of caregivers can connect and learn about resources available for their grandchildren. Our support group will be hosted by a grandparent, Patsy Rainwater-Maddox, who is raising her own teenage grandchildren. All CISD family members raising grandkids, siblings, etc, in grades PreK-12 are welcome to attend.

These short meetings will be a great way to network with others in the same situation and build our own supportive community in Celina. The first meeting will be held on Thursday, August 18, at 1:00PM at the Celina Primary Campus, located at 507 E. Malone Street. Please RSVP for the kick-off meeting this Thursday!
