I often have grandparents email me asking if I know of any support groups near where they live. Unfortunately most of the time, I have to tell them no. Local support groups are sometimes hard to find. Many grandparents find their support online. How do you find them?
There are several groups on Facebook including the one I admin. https://www.facebook.com/groups/RRCSupport (relatives raising children).
But what if you don't use Facebook and you don't want to? Until now, I had no suggestions for these grandparents.
But now, Elder Options of Texas (not just for Texans) runs a new online Forum for grandparents raising their grandchildren.
This online forum is ideal for anyone who is not a Facebook user but looking for a safe and friendly place to ask questions, share experiences, or learn about valuable resources in your state. It is free and you can sign up as yourself or anonymously for privacy purposes.
So now there is something for everyone.
