RAICES GRANDPARENTS KIN-CARE PROGRAM

Stress is a normal part of family life.  However, when grandparents must parent grandchildren due to parental absence, death, or incapacity, special stressors are present.  Grandparents must deal with a system that is far from responsive to their and their grandchildren’s needs as well as the stressors of parenting late in life.  Raíces’ Grandparents Kin-Care Program, at the Red Hook Senior Center, addresses these issues in a friendly and responsive atmosphere, including support groups, counseling, training, education, information and referral, socialization, recreation, and direct client assistance.

RAICES HEALTHY & SECURE COMPUTER TRAINING PROGRAM

The Raíces Healthy and Secure Computer Training Program enables participants new to computers the opportunity to learn computer systems, desktop fundamentals, including MS Windows, the Desktop and various software applications, as well as  "Exploring the Internet" using the world wide web and email.

Each ten week program includes an orientation, hands-on demonstrations, classroom training and training guides, two recitations and full use of the computer lab.  At the end of each 10 week period the enthusiastic students are quite excited of how much they've learned and absorbed in such a short period. 

The program has been extremely successful, that in 2012 the program will be expanded to include many intermediate and advance features including scanning, portable date files (PDF), desktop publishing, additional security measures with electronic mail, the WWW and social network sites.  Additionally, many of the graduates have moved on and purchased their own computers and have continued to attend workshops and orientations to discuss many topics.
