Census and local survey data indicate that the number of grandchildren being raised by grandparents is steadily increasing. About 32% of these grandparents are 55-64 and 20.5% are over 65. They have health, financial, and emotional concerns, and the grandchildren often have emotional, learning, and physical disabilities. (SK)
