Grandma's Kids

The Grandma’s Kids program targets children in kinship placement, informal care and foster care.  We also serve children who are low-income, at-risk of violence and disparities that can mitigate their academic progress. The Grandma’s Kids after-school program focuses on the student via homework and academic support as well as providing social-emotional support for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Our goal is to support children on their journey toward their academic success, provide a safe environment and promote physical health.
