General Information
Description of AgencyGrands As Parent's (G.A.P's) advocates making the necessary changes in our society to ensure that children grow fruitfully into adulthood. The name G.A.P.'s was chosen to signify the way we as grandparents replace the gaps of parenthood in our grandchildren's lives. Grand As Parent's recognizes the needs of relative caregivers. North Central Philadelphia is the focus of the Grands As Parents initiative, which is unique in that it takes the form of a support group and an advocacy group for the rights of the family. Grandparents are already under stress, with many needs of their own. Our perfect picture of a family is usually that of a father, mother, and a child or children. But in today's world that picture doesn't always reflect reality. Many American adults who have already raised their families suddenly find themselves caring for and raising their grandchildren.
