Beginning Thursday, Nov. 14, a free kinship support group will hold monthly meetings to support people parenting the children of friends or family members.

The group will meet the second Thursday of each month from 6-8 p.m. at Chewy's Coop in Hoffman and supply food, training, support and resources.

This group is sponsored through a federal grant to offer support to families who are in formal or informal kinship roles in west-central Minnesota. For more information or to register, call Sarah Boll at 320-634-7781 or visit and search for the event.
