Kinship Care Support Group


Dear Families, 

            We are writing to let you know about the upcoming Kinship Support Group on Tuesday, November 27th at North Pembroke Elementary School from 6:30-7:30 pm.

 This group was created because many children in Pembroke are being raised by grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins or other close family members. These “kinship” families often have unique needs that may include physical, medical, social and emotional challenges.

 This support group provides participants a chance to share their personal experiences with others who are in similar situations and are experiencing the same types of issues. The evening begins with families gathering together for pizza in the cafeteria. After eating, adults will meet in a small group for discussion and resource sharing while children participate in activities supervised by YMCA staff.

 If you would like to join, you must REGISTER one-week prior by contacting Cheryl Larson at Cheryl.Larson@Pembrokek12.org.


We hope to see you there,

Cheryl Larson, LICSW
