Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

Free services and resources to support grandfamilies, strengthen family relationships, and enhance the lives of children.


“This isn’t how I pictured my golden years.”

Have you found yourself in the unexpected position of raising your grandchild or kin? We know you’re facing a complex situation. If you feel unprepared and ill-equipped to assume this new role, we understand and we’re a safe place. Sharing a household across generations can be more manageable with Duet’s support.

Through the help of these supportive services, you can balance the challenges of a new family dynamic.



Duet defines a “grandfamily” as individuals who are raising grandchildren or other relative kin who are raising extended family member’s children. Duet’s kinship care services are provided to grandfamilies regardless of income levels. A detailed eligibility intake/interview is required for families requesting financial assistance to pay for respite, legal assistance, and grandfamily outings. Grandfamilies will need to demonstrate they are actively and legally authorized to care for their vulnerable child.

    “I find it very rewarding to connect grandfamilies with needed services and resources and then see how they become more at ease and start to feel better about themselves and with life in general. I would like grandparents to know that the sky is the limit as they dedicate their lives to raising their grandkids and receive our support services along the way.”
