Press release

Formally known as Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, the Montana Kinship Navigator Program is seeking people that are interested in starting a support group in Havre.

The program “was founded in 2002 to offer grandparents support, education and access to resources so they can live happier, healthier lives and can, in turn, raise children who know emotional and physical safety, excel in school and social situations and are prepared to take on challenges of their new life” the website at http://www.montanagrandparents.org says.

Montana State University Extension Agent Jasmine Carbajal, along with community member and grandmother Colleen White Wolf, are hoping to start a support group in Havre. Meetings would be once a month for two hours. The topics of the group will be chosen by the support group members. There is no fee to join the support group.

The Montana Kinship Navigator Program also has a toll-free number people can use when they need resources. The number is 1-833-445-3395. A Montana Kinship Navigator Program support/education group facilitator training will be held in Bozeman Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 18-19, for anyone interested in becoming a group facilitator. For questions and/or registration for the training, people can contact Heidi Lester at 406-994-3395 or via email at [email protected] .

The first meeting of the Havre Kinship Support Group will be Tuesday, Sept. 3, 6 p.m. at the Havre-Hill County Library.
