Advocating for Families

Our dedicated team at GAP are passionate advocates who believe every time we positively impact one child or one caregiver, we are one step closer to changing our community. When caregivers are overwhelmed, when they find doors slamming in their faces, we step in and advocate on their behalf. We provide connection and support, breaking the isolation kinship families face when parents can no longer parent. Success is not guaranteed, but we persevere as we strive to keep moving the dream forward.

Our Approach

  • Innovative programming aimed at fostering the critical factors a young person needs to thrive, achieve and develop into caring, competent adults.
  • Support and Counseling Services including peer support groups, crisis counseling and linkage services that address immediate needs in the home and child’s life, foster resiliency and strengthen these non-traditional families.
  • Training’s, community outreach and online/offline resources for grandparents and other adult caregivers.
  • Advocacy at the grassroots and government levels for the rights and concerns of adult caregivers and the youth for which they are responsible.
  • GAP’s services are focused primarily in Southern California
