Ties That Bind
Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
JFRF is confronting issues impacting grandparents raising grandchildren head on with our new initiative, Ties That Bind. This program is our response to the growing issue of kinship caregivers (usually grandparents) who find themselves in the primary role of parent, raising grandchildren due to unforeseen circumstances.
On this site you will find a searchable collection of local services, discussion groups*, and a library* of resources that can help kinship caregivers.
(Access to * content requires registration, but don’t worry – we don’t spam you or sell your information!)
We have curated a database of local services within Oregon that are available to provide help for kinship caregivers and their families.
Choose Services Search from the menu to search by name, county, or keyword.
If you are a grandparent, or other relative, age 55 or over, parenting a grandchild 18 or younger, you may be eligible for financial assistance. Click Here for more information.
