Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (GRG) Program was started to educate, support and encourage grandparents raising their grandchildren in our service area.

We are able to serve those grandparents in a nine county region which includes: Bonneville, Butte, Clark, Custer, Fremont, Jefferson, Lemhi, Madison and Teton Counties.

Assistance can entail but is not limited to:

  • Legal
  • Financial
  • Medical
  • Respite/Child Care information
  • Schooling
  • Counseling
  • Emotional issues
  • Parenting and advocacy skills

Along with the above services, the GRG Program also offers a support group that meets the last Tuesday of each month from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm at the Eastern Idaho Community Action Partnership conference room (935 E Lincoln Rd, Idaho Falls).

We also hold an annual summer picnic and an annual Christmas party as a social event for the grandparents and grandchildren in our area.
