Relatives Raising Children (Kankakee County)
Relatives Raising Children: Educational Group and Food Box Program sponsored by Catholic Charities in partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank and Northeastern Illinois Area Agency on Aging. This program is for grandparents (or other relatives) raising non-biological children. Sessions include an educational topic pertinent to your unique caregiving role. Participants must reside in Kankakee County and children must be under the age of 18.
At the end of each session, food boxes are distributed to each participating caregiver. To receive the non perishable food box, you must sign up the month prior and sign an agreement to participate in this program. No proof of income or assets is required.
Sessions are held at Kankakee First Church of the Nazarene (1000 N Entrance Avenue; Kankakee, IL 60901) on the fourth Thursday of every month at 2:00 p.m. Pre-registration is required. Please call Amanda at 815-523-9918.
