Grandfamilies

Grandfamily is a recently coined term that refers to a family where grandparents, great-grandparents, other relatives, or close family friends are raising a child because the biological parents are unwilling or unable to do so.

There are currently 6,660,064 children in the United States who are living in grandfamilies. Over 2.5 million grandparents living with their grandchildren are primarily responsible for the care of these children. 

Do you see this in your ministry?

How do you provide encouragement and support for grandfamilies?

How can we effectively minister to grandfamilies?

How can we partner with grandparents or other relatives who are raising children?
