Project GRANDD

Project GRANDD is a community-based support program for grandparents in the greater Metropolitan Atlanta area who are raising their grandchildren who have disabilities, chronic illness, and behavior or learning difficulties. 


Project GRANDD provides group educational meetings, monthly support groups, home visits, individual case management and practical help where needed.


Project GRANDD partners with the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing to offer students the opportunity to perform home health visits with the families as part of their training and provide valuable health monitoring to the grandparents and their grandchildren. In addition, ISDD has helped these families build a significant and powerful community, which further supports opportunities for growth and empowerment.


To date, over 100 grandparents and 200 grandchildren have been served by Project GRANDD.
