For most of us, being a grandparent means sharing special times with your family and grandchildren and still having time to enjoy your own life. Imagine your plans suddenly changing as you take on the role of parent again. This time for your grandchildren. All the responsibilities for financial support, discipline, daily care, and homework is now yours.
This is a reality for 129 families that currently come to BEAM for assistance. Usually these clients are on a fixed income and trying to stretch their dollars to cover the unexpected and significant costs of caring for growing children.
BEAM is able to support this increasing population of grandparents raising grandchildren by providing resources such as food, diapers and school supplies as well as financial assistance. With your help, BEAM is able to offer some stability to children who have had their lives disrupted. Donate Today!
