The Wolf Administration has launched a helpline for Grandparents raising grandchildren. The KinConnector helpline can help families access local, state, and federal resources.
Kinship Navigators will connect grandparents and other relatives who are raising children with resources such as health, financial and legal services, support groups, training and parenting advice. They will help families locate physical or behavioral health services, enroll the child in school as well as assist in applying for local benefits such as Social Security, public assistance or CHIP.
Call the KinConnector helpline at 1-866-546-2111. Help is available Monday – Thursday from 9AM – 10PM and on Fridays from 9AM – 5PM.
