Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

More than 4.5 million children are living in households headed by grandparents. Many of these grandparents have assumed full responsibility for their grandchildren’s basic needs. These grandparents often lack information about support services, benefits and policies they need to assist in their care-giving efforts.

Listed below are resources and support group information that may assist grandparents in their roles as caregivers:
