Exploring Legal Options - Tips for Grandfamilies Learning Lesson


This online program is the outcome of the Larimer County Alliance for Grandfamilies’ University Engagement Work Team's (UEWT) mission to meet the needs of grandfamilies through university collaboration. In particular, UEWT partners include faculty from Colorado State University Extension, the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, and the School of Social Work at Colorado State University.

We would like to thank Colorado State University’s Media Services, especially Ron Bend, for taping and editing the video segments; Celeste Kling, family lawyer, for providing guidance and appearing in the third video segment; Tina Hopkins-Dukes and Erin Houston, undergraduate research students, for their assistance and editing of the curriculum; and the Larimer County Alliance for Grandfamilies for input on the curriculum. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to the grandparents, Ruben Guerrero, Linda Tanner, and Chuck Staskel, for sharing their experiences and being willing to be filmed for the first two segments.
