Kinship Care

At the Alpena Senior Citizens Center, grandparents/relatives can find resources to assist them with raising children of their relatives.  Custodial grandparents, aunts/uncles or other relatives (age 55 and older) without other resources may apply for mini grants up to $300 per child (infants up through age 17) for clothing, activities, sports, school necessities or emergent needs as funds are available.  Please call 356-3585 x 21 for an appointment.
