AllOne Foundation supported Grandparents raising Grandchildren, a program of the Pittston Memorial Library with a grant of $45,000.  Grandparents have had to face a variety of emotional, legal and daily living challenges as they unexpectedly find themselves in the position of raising a second family for reasons such as drug and alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, incarceration, divorce, military deployment,  and neglect. The grant program supports expanding the number of Support groups and meetings throughout the region, publishing a Directory of Services, and expand the Coalition partners. A new website was created to benefit the regional GRG families:
