Mission in Action

mission_in_actionLast month, Catholic Charities’ child welfare staff held a picnic for families involved in our Grandparents as Parents Program. Grandparents and Guardians, along with the children in their care, gathered to celebrate summer with food and games. The children received books and summer toys to encourage reading and being active over the summer months. Several children received donated bikes.

The program is designed to provide support and education for Grandparents and other caregivers who are actively raising children that are not their own to keep them out of the foster care system. Currently the program is held in four Norfolk Elementary Schools and serves more than 50 families. These caregivers give so much of themselves and have so few resources. As one Grandparent stressed, “this program has done so much to help my family and the other Grandparents involved have become my family.” The program is open to anyone caring for children who are not their own. For more information, please call Milcah Wade at (7575) 456-2366.

Celebrating Grandparents Who Serve as Parents

Many Grandparents and other caregivers are taking on the role of parent to children who are not their own. Catholic Charities is here to provide support and education to those taking on the vital role of parent. Currently we have four groups meeting in the Norfolk Public Schools. Please call (757) 456-2366 for more information.
