Grandparents Raising Grandchildren
A webinar from Grantmakers In Health
In the United States, three million children are being cared for by a grandparent, a figure that has been on the rise. When grandparents assume this responsibility, they often take on added financial and legal responsibilities, too, and with little outside assistance. This webinar provided opportunities for participants to learn about two foundation efforts and how they are working to identify and meet the economic, social, and health needs of grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. Speakers include: Jeff Kim, The California Wellness Foundation; Angie Schwartz, The Children's Alliance; Steven Wallace, University of California, Los Angeles Center for Health Policy Research; Pat White, The New York Community Trust; and Barbara Graves-Poller, MFY Legal Services' Kinship Caregivers Law Project. Webinar date: October 30, 2013. View the recording at http://gih.org/Audio/AudioDetail.cfm?itemnumber=5787.
