Grandparent Family Connections
Grandparent Family Connections (GFC) was initiated with a grant award from the United States Department of Health and Human Services Children’s Bureau to serve grandparent headed households (2003-2008). Since that time, a focus on serving grandparent headed households has continued.
- providing services to individual families,
- conducting grandparent groups,
- providing education and advocacy related to issues of grandparent headed households, and
- promoting the development of policy and services in Maryland on behalf of these families.
