Program Description


"…there is an increase in the amount of primary caregiver grandparents who are living in poverty. About one in five grandparent-run households live below the poverty line and about half of those families live three times below the poverty level. In 2011, the national average for a family of four to be considered in poverty is approximately one making an annual collective income of $22,350. This amount makes it difficult for any family to provide the resources they need to support their families."
