Massachusetts estimates that over 10,400 children in the Commonwealth living without their biological parent present are being raised by their grandparents. The Child Advocate bill and the establishment of the Commission on the Status of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren was signed into law on July 8, 2008. The purpose of this Commission is to be a resource to the Commonwealth on issues affecting grandparents raising grandchildren, and relatives, other than parents, raising kin.
Join Colleen Pritoni, the first Coordinator for The Commission on the Status of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren for an informational session on the services offered by the Commission.
