“I love attending as many [Connectedly] groups as possible, because we share valuable information and ideas to help our grandchildren achieve their best abilities. The grandparents are awesome, our group leader Arlene is wonderful (we all love her), and the guest speakers are very knowledgeable. The best support group ever.” –Philly Families Connect participant
