Institute for Community Health and Wellbeing

GRANDPARENTS AS PARENTS

The Institute, in collaboration with the College of Education, the Department of Social Work, and Grandparents as Parents (GAP) received a grant from the Eisner Foundation to perform an in-depth assessment of the benefits and needs surrounding the services GAP provides for the relative caregivers this organization supports. Three professors and eight students conducted research using photovoice, interviews, focus groups, and surveys. Nearly one hundred-fifty GAP clients participated in the research project. The results of the research activities show that GAP provides its clients with support and resources, as well as a sense of belonging.
