In this annual report released by Generations United, the general wellbeing of grandfamilies living in the U.S. in the year 2015 is assessed. The report includes relevant national statistics on grandfamilies in addition to stories about individuals and communities who have benefited from services and supports geared toward grandfamilies. Furthermore key policy recommendations to strengthen grandfamilies are made: including the need to focus on prevention services that would keep children out of the foster care system and put them into the care of safe and stable family members.
