Our family is active in the Kinship program in Hayward. My grandson enjoys the activities they provide and it gives us grandparents needed respite. There are times at the family events that we have a chance to win prizes and the kids are presented with a gift at Christmas time. There are support groups if you want to participate in too. Lincoln Child Center is a valuable non-profit organization.

I am raising my younger sister and I participated in their Kinship program in 2011 and 2012. They have great activities and outings on Saturdays for the children. It was nice to have a few hours of time to myself and know that my sister was with people that could be trusted and she was having a great time. All of their Kinship staff was so great with the kids. They took the time to get to know each child, treated them with kindness and respect, and were overall great people. A few months ago, I moved out Alameda County and sadly I am no longer able to use their services. I have joined another Kinship program in another county and their services and activities don't compare to what Lincoln had to offer. I really miss the Lincoln Kinship staff and feel that they made a big difference in our lives.

They also offer support group meetings for the caregivers, which was a good benefit to me when I needed advice on how to handle situations with my sister and/or her absent mother.

I wa referred to Lincoln by my attorney, to receive assistance for health care for our great grandson when we became his guardian. They came to my home and assisted with all the paperwork, to get him enrolled for medical benefits. They provide support groups for families li,e mine.

My grandson raymond Thorstenson has been helped a great deal by Lincoln services. He is ADD and ADHD and is in need of every service they can provide. There are no others out there that have helped or even offered to help me with getting custody and raising Raymond. Please help our families with these needs.

In 1979 I lived there. wonderful people work there. I was the first student to leave campus to go to Public school. I really want to thank the people who worked with me and the kids. I am now married 3 daughter and one grandson.
