Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
If you are raising a grandchild or another relative’s child, ACCA is here to help. For many relative caregivers the challenges may be new and unexpected.
Our Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (GRG) resources include:
- Support groups for caregivers
- Case Managers that provide personalized assistance
- Family activities
- Parenting education and workshops
- Emergency assistance with utilities and groceries
This program is open to non-parent caregivers living in Barrow, Clarke, Jackson, Madison, Oconee and Walton counties who are the full-time, primary caregivers of the child or children.
Monthly Support Groups are open to all relative caregivers in our community. Please contact us for information on the support group closest to you.
For more information on this program, please contact Melissa Demaray, Program Coordinator, at (706) 549-4850.
The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program at ACCA is made possible through support from the Department of Human Services, Division of Aging Services, Promoting Safe and Stable Families, and grants from the Jackson EMC Foundation, Walton Electric Trust, and The Turner Foundation.
