Grandparents across the country are becoming parents again. More than six million children – approximately 1 in 12 – are living in households headed by grandparents or other relatives. Ohio has nearly 193,000 children living in such households. In many of these households, grandparents and other relatives are the primary caregivers ("kinship caregivers") for children whose parents cannot, or will not, care for them due to substance abuse, illness and death, abuse and neglect, economic hardship, incarceration, divorce, domestic violence, and other family and community crises.
