"Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Information Center of Louisiana" is geared toward grandparents finding themselves in this situation and, nowhere to go, nobody to talk to. We started the program ten years ago when my husband and I found ourselves having to take care of our grandson."

Did you know, the 2010 Census reports...

  • 7.0% of children under 18 in the U.S. live in households headed by grandparents
  • 11.0% of all children in Louisiana live with their grandparents 
  • Louisiana has the third highest percentage of children living with grandparents in the U.S.

 

Realizing you're not alone...

Grandparents Raising Grandchildren of Louisiana is an organization dedicated to offering both information and support to grandparent and other kinship caregivers and their families. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to serving these families in any way that we can.
