Denise is the guardian of 3 of her grandchildren. The children have faced a lot of difficulties in their early lives and she’s working hard to bring them some much needed love, support, and stability. The number of children being raised by grandparents in Chicago has been on the rise for a long time. Denise’s story is a great reminder of how important it is that schools like KIPP Bloom College Prep exist. They are a critical piece to a much needed support system for all types of families.
