"What is SOWN? For me it is a group that meets over the telephone every Tuesday. I wait for my call to connect me with other women and a wonderful leader. I can discuss with these women my problems and learn some good ideas. Everyone cares so much. I don't ever miss my SOWN group. This group has been really good to me and my family." - Jean, age 84


"When I first came to SOWN's GrandFamily Resource Center, I was angry all the time, depressed and crying. I have been faithfully attending the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren support group and I have come to understand that while I don’t want this job, I have this job and SOWN is here to help me."- Sara, age 75, raising her grandsons ages 2 and 4
