Grandparents Raising Grandchildren: Caring for Children in the Frontier

Frontier Education Center, 2004.
“Grandparents are increasingly becoming responsible for their children’s children.” This Issues Brief charts the growth of this phenomenon and highlights the many issues facing both the caregivers and the children that are cared for in various kinship settings. It highlights research to date and suggests that “more research is needed to find effective information channels to reach rural and frontier grandparents…and to design services that are accessible and acceptable.”

Includes information from a 2003 Census Brief on this issue and maps showing the scope of the problem nationally and in frontier counties.
