This issue brief is the last in a series of three presenting the findings from the Informal Caregivers Research Project, funded by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation’s Children, Families, and Communities (CFC) program and conducted by Mathematica. This brief discusses the varied roles of parents and informal caregivers, their strengths in caring for children, their needs for information and support, and barriers they face in accessing caregiving resources. It also provides recommendations for outreach methods, programs, and policies to address their needs.
