According to Sunday's morning news, another new face of poverty in Boise is grandparents raising grandchildren.

 An increasing number of grandparents are bringing their grandchildren to the Boise Rescue Mission for meal service at the City of Light home for Women and Children.

The AARP website has a special resource guide called the GrandCare Toolkit for grandparents raising young children.

Idaho Grandparents as Parents (G.A.P.) has a resource website. The Boise group meets the first Monday of every month (6:30-8:30pm) at the First Church of the Nazarene (3852 N Eagle Road, Boise - 2nd floor fireside room).

If you know of any grandparents raising their grandchildren, please help connect them to the resources available.
