Our Goal: To Support Little Compton Grandfamilies

The Little Compton Prevention Coalition introduces the Grandfamily Support Initiative, a collaboration of Child & Family and Newport County Prevention Coalition. The program offers a support group for grandparents who are primary caregivers for grandchildren by providing an opportunity to come together and provide mutual support to one another.

With Your Help, We Can Make the Goal a Reality

Grandfamilies often face challenges that put stress on the family, especially if child care is needed or if caregivers are living on fixed budgets. Your financial support can make a significant difference for many of our grandfamilies. Please consider donating if you are able.

“I can say with certainty that I would not be the woman I am today, on the path of healing and helping others, if not for the selflessness of my grandmother and the love and support she continues to provide me. Thanks to her and the support of family, friends, and even some strangers, I feel I’m in a position to help other Grandfamilies access the unique resources and support needed in order to thrive.”
