It’s a RAPP
RAPP. It sounds so edgy. But what it is, is an extremely useful, well-thought out and free support group entitled Relatives as Parents Program.
In these parts, RAPP is sponsored by the Cornell Cooperative Extension Dutchess County. It has three locations in the county including one in Amenia, at the South Amenia Presbyterian Church. The group meets monthly. When it does it offers not only a wealth of resources and services to the adult relatives serving as parents to the children under their care, but also recreational and social opportunities for the children themselves.
