COVID-19/Emergency Preparedness Resource Guide For Kinship Families and Grandfamilies

Produced by Supporting Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (SGRG) Advisory Council, Administration for Community Living

“Kinship Families and Grandfamilies” are families in which children are raised by their grandparents, other extended family members, or adults with whom they have a close family-like relationship. Currently, there are an estimated 2.7 million children in grandfamily/kinship households without parents in the home. Under normal circumstances, these families face significant challenges—health, well-being, financial, and legal—to name a few. During emergency circumstances, including natural disasters or pandemics, these challenges are amplified for Kinship Families and Grandfamilies.

Recognizing these concerns, the Supporting Grandparents Raising Grandchildren (SGRG) Advisory Council produced the following list of resources specifically for Kinship Families and Grandfamilies during emergencies such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.
