VIDEO: Grandparents Raising Grandchildren – You’re Not Alone

In San Diego County, there are over 24,000 grandparents raising grandchildren and hundreds more relative caregivers. Often times, these caregivers have changed their plans for retirement and relaxation to step in to care for a relative. The support of these grandparents, aunts, uncles and other family members is a crucial element in creating a loving environment for a child to grow and thrive.
