Report: How Schools Can Support Basic Needs of Grandfamilies

In this 2021 report from Generations United, you will find many ideas for increasing awareness of and supports for grandparents and other kinship caregivers raising children in your school community

In contrast to children living with non-kin foster parents, children in grandfamilies experience increased stability, higher levels of permanency,
and greater safety. They experience better behavioral and mental health outcomes. Children in grandfamilies have an increased likelihood of living
with or staying connected to siblings, and they have a greater likelihood of preserving their cultural identity and community connections. They also feel better about their situation and are more likely to report that they always feel loved.
