This week on Helping Hand, we’re welcoming back a very special program you may have heard around this time last year, GrandCares Hawaii. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Heather Greenwood-Junkermeier, Faculty Member at UH Manoa who oversees the program, which is also found online here. According to their website, GRANDCares Hawaii is a project of UH Mānoa and Colorado State University to support vulnerable grandparents who are raising grandchildren by providing access to community resources and information. They have programs underway now in Hawaii and are expanding.  

Helping Hand airs Fridays on HPR1 stations statewide, as part of our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then is archived online here. Every week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to people with disabilities and people and animals among the most vulnerable.
