Our mission is to advocate and lobby for substantial and urgent legislative changes that protect the rights of grandparents to secure their grandchildren’s health, happiness and well-being. We are committed to monitoring agencies that affect our grandchildren at the city, county, state and federal levels and to protect the rights of grandparents and the needs of grandchildren who are at risk.
