Grandfamilies Advocacy Network Demonstration (GrAND)
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 who have a range of expertise and personal experience as relatives who have raised children when their parents have been unable to raise them. 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 into Generations United’s resources and advocacy on behalf of grandfamilies.
