I honestly don't know, but please try contacting your local churches and also your local State/County Human Resources Department. Both will definitely be able to guide you to the right places for help. I pray that all will be well for you and your grandchildren and bless you, for whatever the circumstances of why you happen to be raising your grandchildren, that all will fair well.

AARP has information on grandparents raising grandchildren. I have raised a grandchild and as a retired child psychologist also spoke to groups on this issue. You also might try a YWCA if there is one near you or a mental health agency. When I was involved in this, there were a lot of organizations supporting us.

We lived in Springfield about a year ago and we had trouble finding anyone to help us. We are raising three of our grandkids. We now live in Arkansas. We have found a wonderful group called Arkansas Voices, don't know if they have one there. You might look up Missouri Voices.

Here in Ohio we have kinship groups in every county. They were started by the state welfare office. Contact them in your area. Your state should have them also as it was a federal program that started them. They are a great group who has a lot of information that may help you. They also support you through the steps you take. Just having someone to talk to helps a lot. We love our kinship group.
