SHOCKING! Yet it’s true! There are more than 5,000 grandparents that we know of who are currently raising their grandchildren in Ventura County alone. At its best, it’s a daunting task for a retired grandparent, frightening and intimidating to a grandparent not yet retired.
“I was flabbergasted once I realized that I’d be raising my grandchildren on my own, in a tiny home on a limited income. My short-lived retirement was abruptly surrendered to tend to the needs of my grandchildren. It was intimidating and I had no idea what to do until I turned to Kids & Families Together. I am eternally grateful to them for helping me hold my family together. I couldn’t have done it without them!” LM
