This group meeting in Naples, Florida, is expanding into other areas and states. The website's listing of affiliated organizations
includes other Florida chapters, as well as organizations in other states. AGA shares most of the missions of other grandparent support groups but also aims to increase awareness of Parental Alienation Syndrome
(PAS), a pattern of behavior which is generally not recognized by the medical or legal community as a specific syndrome.
GROWS is described on its website as "a determined assemblage of loving grandparents" seeking visitation with their grandchildren. In addition to being a support group, GROWS works for legislation that will "provide legal recourse" for grandparents who have been denied contact with their grandchildren. The website shows a meeting location
of Fife, Washington, but additional contacts are listed in other parts of Washington. Professionals in the fields of therapy or law mediate the sessions.
Affiliated with Advocates for Grandparent Grandchild Connection (AFGGC), the Lost Access support groups meet in several locations. The group that has been meeting for the longest meets in Corona Del Mar and is led by Susan Hoffman, author of Precious Bond
and Grand Wishes
, books for estranged grandparents. Another group meets in Santa Clarita. The AFGGC website
also lists several support groups meeting in other states.
