HARRISBURG – Rep. Karen Boback (R-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Wyoming) announces a start- up support group to assist Wyoming County grandparents who are raising grandchildren.

“The opioid epidemic has increased the numbers of grandparents who have become the primary caregivers of their grandchildren and they do so with very little support,” said Boback. “In an effort to assist Wyoming County families, I am spearheading this support group and would like to invite those who are interested in participating to contact my Tunkhannock district office to sign up. This group will be comprised of local elected officials and area experts who can assist any individual with raising their grandchildren. Please know you are not alone.”

The first meeting will be held in January at a site to be determined.

Those interested in participating or for more information, contact Boback’s Tunkhannock district office at 570-836-4777.
