The Caregiver Coalition, consisting of service providers, exists to serve two purposes. They serve as an Advisory Committee for the National Family Caregiver Support Program at Grand Gateway and as a coordinating coalition for caregiver services with the Native American Tribes/Nations of Northeast Oklahoma. Meetings are held every two months to discuss policies, procedures, and special events.
By sharing information we are able to stay informed about important changes and eliminate duplication of services. Services for caregivers and grandparents raising grandchildren are enhanced by working together, identifying needs, sharing expenses and talents.
