Parenting is tough; parenting a second time can be even harder. This group aims to bring grandparents and other relative caregivers together to celebrate successes, mourn losses, problem solve for the hard times, and give support to one another. We hope you can join us to hear from other kinship caregivers and learn more about resources and opportunities that are available in your community.
This program is sponsored by the Family Resource Center of Central NH and the Greater Tilton Area Family Resource Center.

The Kinship Navigation Program links grandparents and other relative caregivers, both inside and outside of the formal child welfare system, to the services and supports specific to their family’s needs.
Kinship Navigators provide emotional support, education and guidance to relative caregivers, and offer information, referral, and follow-up services to promote independence and enhance the well-being of the families they serve.
Kinship Navigation Program participation is FREE and voluntary and open to grandparents and other relative caregivers who are raising a child/children in the absence of the child/children’s biological parents.
As many are aware, the communities within the Lakes Region have been especially impacted by the opioid epidemic over the last decade, and we have seen the number of grandparents raising grandchildren rise as a result. This program is designed to provide a space for caregivers to find support that is specific to their needs and their experience.
