The Resounding Resiliency of Grandfamilies

To deepen our understanding of the financial situations facing grandfamilies, particularly those in low- to moderate-income households, Citi Community Development convened Generations United and Prosperity Now to interview grandparent caregivers. The purpose of these interviews was to gain an understanding of grandfamilies’ individual household finances, including how they earn and spend money, what financial products they use to transact and store money, what challenges they face and what strengths they draw upon. Their stories open a discussion about how organizations that offer social or financial services to grandfamily caregivers can help build financial stability and increase mobility for these multi-generational families.
