The Peoria SUPPORT program is kicking off its awareness seminar series with a…
FREE Seminar: Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
According to the 2010 census, 10% of children in the U.S. are living with a grandparent, totaling 7.5 million. These numbers are thought to be low considering the impact of the economy and higher rates of addiction and incarceration in the last 5 yrs.
For that reason, Benevilla and the City of Peoria are working together to raise awareness surrounding issues that affect this growing community by hosting two seminars in September.
The Seminar will cover topics such as: Why this is a growing phenomenon, What impact does it have on families, What are the legal and financial implications, and Help with finding resources and support.
