Collins, Susan M., Christine A. Fruhauf, and Kimberly Bundy-Fazioli. GrandFamilies: The Contemporary Journal of Research, Practice and Policy 3, no. 1: 2.

This analytical study examines the diverse needs of grandparents who are raising their grandchildren.  The data used in the study was gathered from a group of grandparents who were receiving support services in their community. The authors aim to summarize some of the psychosocial and functional needs of grandparents raising grandchildren and to assess whether or not support services provide adequate help.
