More Info

President Nora Murray founded Grandparents On The Move Inc. in 2003.   Ms. Nora was left with the responsibility of raising her small grandchild after the tragic passing of her son and daughter in-law in 1999. Ms. Nora was retired and on a fixed income and because she made just $1.00 over the income limit she did not qualify for cash or food assistance from the state to help her provide for her grandchild.  Frustrated, overwhelmed, grieving and puzzled by the lack of direction, compassion and assistance she was receiving, Ms. Nora returned to the work force by starting her own home daycare in 2000.  The journey was rough and there were really no answers to her questions.  The programs that did provide a little assistance were brief and short lived. This lead to Ms. Nora's creation of Grandparents On The Move, Inc. (GOTMO) Ms. Nora wanted to provide a program that provided stability and sustainability that will last well into the future.  

GOTMO provides support group counseling for grandparents, caregivers, and children, mental & physical well-being, financial literacy, Microsoft training & resume building, health awareness and nutrition, group and recreational activities.  

Your donations will help us to provide 100 backpacks with basic school supplies to help the children start the 2022-2023 school year prepared.
