The COVID-19 pandemic "has heightened challenges for multigenerational caregivers, many of whom are vulnerable to the virus while taking care of children," says this article from USA Today. "One in four children living with grandparents are Black, according to Annie E. Casey Foundation KidsCount data using U.S. Census figures." According to the article, Generations United, a nonprofit for multigenerational families, has developed a COVID-19 guide for multigenerational families, as well as a racial equity tool kit to help health and social services providers become more culturally competent regarding family makeup.
