Self-help group refers to two or more people that come together to deal with a common problem. These groups are all over the world and often called support groups. Groups are often run by and for the members, “experts” themselves.  The strength in joining together in a group can help a person stabilize their situation and gain the energy needed to see to their current needs.

The purpose of these groups is to create a community of grandfamilies and the children in their care to stay connected and involved with other grandfamilies in the area. To provide support and understanding of grandfamilies in need.

“HUGS” Daytime Social Groups

You alone can do this, but you don't have to do it alone! Sometimes we simply need to know someone is there. Not to fix anything or do anything in particular, but just to feel supported and cared about.  We've created a place to be social and uplifting with a daytime social/support group. We have monthly topics that encourage positive thinking and ways to care for ourselves. We offer speakers to keep us informed with topics that concern our needs. We keep our hands busy by creating blankets or pillows that are distributed to kids/families in the foster/kin foster system that are  in need of a little uplifting. Groups meet monthly in both Fort Collins and Loveland. We now have a Bilingual English/Spanish  group.  We encourage other groups to start up in other cities. For more information about times and locations download our flier.  English    Spanish “She looks like a little angel and loves her blanket. Thank you for giving it to her, she is really struggling.”
