In 2015, the U.S. Census Bureau recorded 2.9 million households headed by grandparents raising their grandchildren. "Grandfamilies," as they are being called, have a unique set of needs, including legal issues (custody and guardianship), navigating child-serving systems, accessing and maintaining health services for themselves and their grandchildren, and a social support network. This webinar was an opportunity to hear about this important issue, explore resources and opportunities for family-run organizations to develop programming and supports to meet this need, and listen to Jaia Lent from Generations United as she shared the latest data from the field and other available resources.
