The purpose of this grant project was to develop and fund a support group program for kinship caregivers who are raising their younger family members in Los Angeles County. The goal of this support group is to help kinship caregivers develop or enhance their strengths, skills, and supports so that their younger family members can graduate from high school or obtain a general equivalency diploma (GED), and transition into their communities as productive young adults. The support groups would provide information and resources to address the demanding needs of kinship caregivers as they relate to helping older adolescents stay in school and obtain their high school diploma or GED. This project was developed for Grandparents as Parents (GAP), an advocacy, training, and support group organization serving Los Angeles County. The selected funding source was the Weingart Foundation. The actual funding and submission of this grant proposal were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
