A new online database can help grandparents and other relatives raising kin children to find support and services. The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Foundation has launched the Grandcare Support Locator, which allows kinship caregivers to search for specific types of groups and services within their State or jurisdiction. Using the online search form, users can search within their zip code to find services (child care, health care, respite care, newsletters) or support groups (in-person, telephone support, or online). Users can limit the search to Spanish or English language results, and they can restrict the search to items relevant to grandparents raising grandchildren or to grandparents experiencing visitation issues. Find the free searchable database on the AARP website.
