The GaGa Sisterhood is a California-based community organization designed to be a social network for grandmothers. Launched in 2003, the unique organization aims to help cultivate a conversation on what it means to be a grandma today, share creative ways to connect with one's grandchildren and overall, "indulge in the joy of being grandmas."
The GaGa Sisterhood meets every other month in the San Francisco Peninsula region at various members' homes and is intended as a positive, safe space to rehash the challenges and joys of being a grandmother. The unique organization is a great way to combat concerns around isolation in older women and demonstrates the need for more innovative solutions to building community.
