Innovative grandparent housing featured nationally

Pemberton Park, a Kansas City apartment complex for grandparents raising their grandchildren, was prominently featured in a recent article in The Economist. 

The author writes: 

"Visiting Pemberton Park inspires both hope and gloom. On a positive note, resident grandmothers describe tireless efforts to bring stability to the lives of their children's children.... On a bleaker note, the grandmothers describe a society in bad shape."

LINC supports Pemberton Park by providing support training for the grandchildren including the course on survival skills for young people which recently held a graduation for those who completed the multi-week class.

LaToya Walker is the Social Services Coordinator for Pemberton Park for Grandfamilies

LINC recently produced a map showing the number of grandparents raising grandchildren in the area.
