In New Mexico, 25,209 grandchildren are responsible for raising their grandchildren. On October 16th Las Cumbres' Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program will be hosting a Statewide Conference for grandparents who care for their grandchildren often due to the difficult absence of the children's biological parents in their lives. The event will be held at the Santa Fe Convention Center on Friday, October 16, from 8am until 4pm. Registration will be available in the near future. The agency is currently seeking sponsorships to help cover many specific costs that will directly help participants more fully partake of this important venue.
