GRANDS members understand the unique challenges of parenting second families, support and encourage one another, have a wealth of information and resources to help grandparents raising their grandchildren navigate through and cope with the sometimes tedious legal, financial and psychological obstacles of parenting grandchildren.
Can I bring my grandchildren to GRANDS� meetings?
