A Resource Guide for Massachusetts Grandparents Raising their Grandchildren (2013)

Assuming the responsibility of raising grandchildren is often an unanticipated situation for grandparents. Identifying financial, social, health and legal resources can be confusing, difficult and time-consuming. Knowing what services and programs are available and where to access information is essential in managing a new family situation and parenting responsibilities. This guide was developed to assist grandparents and other kinship caregivers to locate and obtain needed resources.
