Grands Flourish Inc. is Rhode’s Island’s only 501c3 non-profit organization that focuses on providing support, services and resources to grandparents raising grandchildren impacted by substance use disorder and other traumas.
Mission – Through program engagements, we inspire, engage, and empower grandparents with the tools they need to navigate complex systems to be successful in their new role as caregivers.
Vision – Our vision is to bring intergenerational housing stability to individuals in vastly different stages in their lives.
A Grand Village™– Our ultimate goal is to create a supportive housing community called, “A Grand Village.” We envision this as a space where both grandparents and grandchildren have access to numerous in-resident social, educational and health supports; childcare, a pediatrician and senior supports to successfully raise their grandchildren and affordably age in place.
We imagine a place where children run in the halls, followed watchfully (and slowly) by their grandparents. A safe space where residents can rest their souls, even for just a little while from the ripple-effects of their adult children in shelters, rehab, on the streets, incarcerated, or, tragically, in graveyards.
A Grand Village would be a place that gives individuals the freedom to come out of the narrow scopes of life and into the field of endless possibilities.
The Grand Facts state fact sheets for grandfamilies include state specific data and programs as well as information about public benefits, educational assistance, legal relationship options and state laws.
