These times are unprecedented. You may have become sick; lost loved ones; lost your job; lost your ability to even go out to dinner. Your kids and grandkids are homeschooling and distancing. And, this is a time to either fall apart emotionally and financially or band together as a family and community. This program, presented in partnership with the New York Public Library, is based on renowned author Neale Godfrey's latest book and intended to provide parents and grandparents with tools to help their families thrive financially during these unprecedented times.
