The Wilmington Senior Center created the Grandparent Resource Center in 1997 to support the growing number of grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Today, more than 10,000 families in Delaware are headed by grandparents or relative care givers.
The Grandparent Resource Center and the Care Giver Resource Center are dedicated to the empowerment of these relative care givers’ families and the children they’re raising. The centers provide:
- Information, referrals, individual care management
- Weekly/monthly peer support group meetings
- Monthly educational programs
- Help finding resources to strengthen families
The Center is open Monday thru Thursday, 9:00am to 2:00pm. It is located on the 2nd Floor of the Wilmington Senior Center Building, 1901 N. Market Street, Wilmington, DE 19802. The Resource Center’s phone number is (302) 651-3424.
