Grandparent Resource Center

The Wilmington Senior Center created the Grandparent Resource Center in 1997 to support the growing number of grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Today, more than 10,000 families in Delaware are headed by grandparents or relative care givers.

The Grandparent Resource Center is dedicated to the empowerment of these relative care givers’ families and the children they’re raising. The centers provide:

  • Information, referrals, individual care management
  • Weekly/monthly peer support group meetings
  • Monthly educational programs
  • Help finding resources to strengthen families


My Child DE is a user-friendly website that brings together resources to help families, providers and other caretakers make informed choices for the children of Delaware. The goal of My Child DE is to help these groups feel welcome, informed and empowered to engage, learn and take the next steps needed to support children.
