GrAND Network

GrAND Network

Generations United’s Grandfamilies Advocacy Network Demonstration, known as the GrAND network, is comprised of a select group of grandparents and other relative caregivers from across the country. GrAND members serve as strategic partners to inform policies and practices affecting grandfamilies and help reveal family strengths, needs and service gaps. They provide guidance and feedback on Generations United’s resources and advocacy on behalf of grandfamilies.
