Relatives as Parents
The Relatives as Parents Program (RAPP) was established to help grandparents and other relatives parenting children with needed information, services, and support. The program offers services that range from a friendly and sympathetic ear to providing a KIDKAMP Connection.
Information and answers to legal, medical, and financial questions can be addressed with compassion and understanding. A network of agencies across the state have established programs to meet the needs of each “kincare” family.
The KIDKAMP Connection gives both respite to the caregiver 60 and older and a scholarship for children 18 and under to participate in recreational and educational programs during summer and school vacations.
To get more information on RAPP and how it can help you or someone you know, call DEA at 462-0507. You can also call one of these RAPP agencies.
