An estimated 36 percent of grandparents in Bexar County are raising their grandchildren. Beyond the everyday tasks, there are so many additional needs to consider when raising grandchildren – such as tax and health care benefits, mental health challenges, legal documents, support groups, and other resources.
Jewish Family Service San Antonio (JFS) has gathered a panel of social service professionals who will discuss and answer questions for grandparents and other relatives raising children. The free seminar – Kinship Care 101: A Discussion for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren – will be held online Thursday, Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Participating agencies include:
- Jewish Family Service of San Antonio
- AACOG – Area Agency on Aging
- San Antonio Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
- Methodist Children’s Home Family Outreach
- Texas Legal Services Center
