Relatives As Parents Program (RAPP)

Help! I am a single grandmother and I am a full time caregiver of my three grandchildren ages five, seven, and nine. I am very overwhelmed and do not know what to do. Is there anyone I can talk to? If this sounds familiar, RAPP is here to support you whether you are raising a grandchild, niece, nephew, or other relative child under age 18.
