Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
Easing the Burden for Grandparents Raising Children
For many at-risk youth, grandparents are often the next best hope for providing these children with a stable, loving home.
Within many families, however, these arrangements present certain challenges. Grandparents often do not have adequate resources to care for their grandchildren. Also, due to a wide generation gap and other social considerations, grandparents who are raising their grandchildren typically have unique parenting needs.
The Children’s Home + Aid Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program helps strengthen these families through numerous services and resources including referral assistance, respite care, gap filling funds, legal assistance and support groups.
The Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program is available in the Southern Region.
