UCSC gets in the spirit of giving
Located less than 50 feet away from the Urban Child Study Center in One Park Place, Project Healthy Grandparents conducts their Annual Holiday Adoption Program which affords individuals the opportunity to “adopt” a family during the holiday season. These families are led by grandparents who are raising their grandchildren in their parents’ absence. The adoption program allows these families to provide wish lists of items that would make their families holiday season a bit more brighter. The Urban Child Study Center welcomed the opportunity to participate again in 2016 by adopting a family of a grandmother and granddaughter. As the center continues to conduct research that positively impacts the lives of children, we continue to look for opportunities to be involved with community initiatives such as these.
