MCH Celebrates National Grandparents Day

The Grandparents as Parents Program (GAPP) is a community outreach program located on the Waco campus. Rehan McNeil, lead program coordinator, and Dave McHam, coordinator, currently serve 49 grandparents. These grandparents combined are raising 135 grandchildren.

GAPP offers support groups, parenting workshops and enrichment activities to help equip these families facing new challenges. They kicked off the fall season by celebrating National Grandparents Day on September 12. The grandparents were honored by attending an informal meal at a local restaurant. Fun and fellowship was enjoyed by all.
