Grandparents As Caregivers Focus Group to Continue at El Pueblo History Museum
PUEBLO, Colo.(February 17, 2020) – The second meeting of the Grandparents As Caregivers Focus Group will meet on Monday, February 25 at El Pueblo History Museum from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. All grandparents who are caregivers are invited to attend and provide information on what assistance they want or need, to ensure that upcoming support programs meet the needs of the community. These meetings will continue monthly through a partnership between El Pueblo History Museum and EPIC Pueblo.
The goal of this focus group is to learn the needs of grandparents in our community who are either raising or helping to raise their grandchildren, and to connect participants with resources that can help with those needs. Representatives from Pueblo County Department of Social Services and Catholic Charities have been invited to participate in the February meeting. Grandparents or agencies who wish to participate in the monthly meetings should contact Tamara Trujillo at El Pueblo History Museum by phone, at (719) 583-0453 or via email at email@example.com.
Attendees are asked to please provide information on any children who will be attending as well as their ages, so that appropriate child care can be provided by the museum.
The Grandparents As Caregivers meetings will continue monthly. Please contact either El Pueblo History Museum or EPIC Pueblo for more information.
