Celebrating 60 Years of Service

Annual Oktoberfest Supports Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Program

North Shore Senior Center would like to extend a special "thank you" to all of those who contributed to our Oktoberfest event, which supported our program Grandparents Raising Grandchildren! We also want to thank our sponsors: Peck Ritchey, LLC, ARC Homecare, Best Care for You, Dogbotz Boneyard, LLC, Humana, Right at Home, The Merion and Symphony of Evanston.

The success of Oktoberfest will help cover the cost of supporting grandparents who have stepped in to raise their grandchildren in the parents' absence. Case managers on staff at North Shore Senior Center's Niles Senior & Family Services office act as program facilitators. Through this program, seniors can receive emotional support, parenting education, respite and financial counseling/assistance while they navigate the challenges of raising their grandchildren.

North Shore Senior Center partnered with Smylie Brother's Brewing Co. in Evanston for the festive evening. Guests were offered a variety of foods and had the opportunity to sample craft beers.

Please join us in thanking all of those who contributed to Oktoberfest and enabling North Shore Senior Center to continue serving Grandparents Raising Grandchildren. We were able to raise $2,357 for this critical Evanston-based program.
