The Commission on the Status of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren will be convening workshops this fall throughout Massachusetts. Each workshop is approximately three hours long.

A guest speaker will present at each workshop a topic important to relative caregivers. Each presentation will be followed by an information panel, which includes representatives from agencies who work with grandparents raising grandchildren and relative caregivers such as Department of Transitional Assistance, Department of Children and Families, Masshealth, Women, Infants, and Children, Elder Services, and more.

Local community support providers will also be present.
