Through our Family Resource Center established in 2011, seniors residing in South Phoenix can now have access to information, resources, counselling, programs and service referrals appropriate for their needs. The fastest growing segment of the senior population we serve is Grandparents raising grandchildren or seniors involved in kinship-care relationships. This unique constituency of seniors requires a unique approach to care and service coordination that would include both the senior and the child under their care. Family counselling and parenting advocacy training are essential components of the care coordination process. Through a partnership with Tanner Properties, Inc, Tanner Community Development Corporation currently works with Grand-families residing in Grand-families Place located in South Phoenix. This is a Tax Credit affordable housing facility specifically designed to accommodate Grandparents raising grandchildren. The facility accommodates 55 Grand-families.
