Susman-Stillman, Amy; Stout, Karen; Cleveland, Jennifer; Hawley, Vicki
Zero to Three (J), v31 n5 p42-50 May 2011
In 1997, Minnesota became the first state in the nation to pass legislation establishing an education and support program for family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) care providers. This article describes the Minnesota Family, Friend and Neighbor Grant Program and findings from an evaluation of the programs and a curriculum scan of materials used in the programs. The authors discuss lessons about program implementation and offer recommendations for continued program development. The authors also describe caregiver-reported activities as a result of program participation and share experiences of a unique and prominent group of FFN caregivers--grandmothers.
