Generations United: Grandfamilies.org

Posted 4/29/2020

Generations United's National Center on Grandfamilies works to enact policies and promote programs to help grandfamilies address challenges.

Grandfamilies.org serves as a national legal resource in support of grandfamilies within and outside the child welfare system. Its goals are to:

  • Educate individuals about state laws, legislation and policy in support of grandfamilies
  • Assist interested policymakers, advocates, caregivers, and attorneys in exploring policy options to support relatives and the children in their care
  • Provide technical assistance and training

A searchable database of relevant state laws, policy manuals, and administrative codes and downloadable, resource-rich fact sheets for each state are among the free services available.
