Organization Details
62,000 grandparents and other kinship caregivers are caring for 143,000 children in Louisiana (1 in 9 children in the state). These second time around parents (grands) have special challenges due to their age, the pressures on their economic resources, legal issues, and physical, social and emotional stresses. The COVIC-19 Pandemic has added to the stresses on the grandparents as well as on the already displaced children. During this time of crisis, the families are experiencing special needs including issues with child care; home or virtual schooling; health issues; basic support issues for food, clothing, diapers, and assist with bills.
