Grandparent Connection

Grandparent Connection is a program of the Senior Advocate's office that offers a monthly support group and resources for grandparents who are raising their grandchildren.

Our support group is non-threatening and non-judgmental. We offer complete confidentiality and a safe place to come and talk, cry or just listen. Come and share your experiences and concerns.

The program is free and open to any grandparent (or other relative raising a child) in the area. Grandparent Connection meets on the third Thursday of each month from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the Community Development Building, 9800 Government Center Parkway, Chesterfield. Free child care is available.
