Number of "grand-families" increasing across America

A recent report from Generations United, a national group focusing on "intergenerational collaboration" between kids, young adults and older adults reveals that the rate of children being raised - at least partially - by grandparents and other relatives is on the rise. These so-called "grand-families" are often formed by trauma affecting a nuclear family, such as divorce, incarceration of one or both biological parents, abandonment or even death of one or both biological parents.

The grandparents in these situations step in to raise the children, sometimes to help the kids avoid going into the foster care system. The Generations United report emphasizes the very important role that grandparents play in the lives of their grandchildren.
