Tip Sheet- Latino Grandfamilies: Helping Latino Children Thrive through Connection to Culture and Family

Access the tip sheet.

About one in four children in the United States are Latino. Latino children are much more likely than non-Latino white children to live in multigenerational households where three or more generations live, and where the grandparents or other kin may be providing a significant amount of caregiving. This multigenerational caregiving is one of the Latino community’s many cultural strengths.

This resource is designed as a quick reference tool for practitioners – including social workers, government and nonprofit workers, and community leaders working with grandfamilies and kinship families who identify as Latino, Latina, or Latinx – to help them provide services in a way that is culturally sensitive and effective. It may also be used as a training tool for professional development. The content is based on Generations United’s complementary toolkit, which provides additional detailed information, resources, and infographics. The toolkit also includes definitions and explanations of key terms used in this resource.
