The National Committee of Grandparents for Children’s Rights (or the NCGCR) was founded in 2002 by a group of grandparents who wanted to work on changing laws governing family rights to care for children. The NCGCR is based out of Long Island, New York. ever since the NCGCR was founded, NCGCR members have been involved in co-hosting and hosting GrandRallies throughout the nation (including three in Washington D.C.) and Kinship Summits. The NCGCR has also been able to propose resolutions that were adopted by the 2005 White House Conference on Aging as well as working to successfully include the relative notification provision in the Kinship Caregiver Support Act in the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act. Finally, the NCGCR has been responsible for assisting thousands of grandparents and relatives in finding the information and supports that they needed to gain custody or visitation of their relative children.
