Power to the Grandparents
Nearly 100 grandparents raising their grandchildren made it out to Casa Grande last Saturday, from as far away as Flagstaff and despite the heavy rains, to participate in the Second Annual Arizona Grandparent Ambassadors Community Outreach & Advocacy Summit.
For many, the event, sponsored by the Arizona Grandparent Ambassadors, gave them the knowledge that they were not alone in their efforts and could count on the support of others to help them through the more challenging times. They also used this opportunity to brainstorm about strategies to help them keep their families together.
Many thanks to state Senator Leah Landrum-Taylor and state Representative Frank Pratt who participated in the Summit and engaged in thoughtful discussion about potential policy developments.
