Statewide Zoom Support Group for Grandparents and Relative Caregivers!
In response to COVID-19, and in recognition of the importance of support during difficult times, members of the Commission will be hosting Zoom support groups for grandparents raising grandchildren and relative caregivers living in Massachusetts. Groups will be held bi-weekly and will be offered both in the morning and in the evening in order to accommodate busy schedules and needs. Guest speakers will be invited throughout the summer in order to provide the most updated information about services and resources for families or to address specific issues raised during meetings.
Schedule of meetings:

  • 1st and 3rd Monday evenings/month 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
  • 1st and 3rd Tuesday mornings/month 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
