“It takes a village to raise a child” is an old African Proverb meaning that parents need help from Uncles, Aunts, Granddad, Grandma, Big Mama, and members of the community. Grandparents today have been put in the position of rearing their grandchildren, due to unforeseen circumstances, such as parent’s abuse of drugs, alcohol abuse, abandonment, incarceration, mental illness, unemployment, divorce and death, etc.

Recent news about COVID-19 has impacted us all.
