Generations United and the Alliance Release Intergenerational Survey Findings
The Alliance for Children and Families and Generations United recently released Intergenerational Family Connections: The Relationships that Support a Strong America.
The Alliance and Generation United surveyed more than 2,000 adults about their intergenerational family bonds across age, income levels, and distance. Findings show that family members are highly dependent on each other and give their time and financial resources in many crucial ways including basic needs, health care, education, and child care. Having a dependable support system helps families foster resilience and the ability to better manage various traumas and life challenges..
"Committing to Our Families" is a signature series on the state of families from Families in Society at the Alliance for Children and Families.
