GRANDFAMILIES

**ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND OF JUNE 26-27** Millie Stewart cleans dishes as her grandchildren Sierra Burden, 13, behind at left, and Shayna Burden, center, 16, talk and Sean Burden, 6, watches in Detroit, June 9, 2004. More than 78,000 Michigan grandparents were raising their grandchildren in 2000. In Detroit, housing advocates estimate that 17,000 grandparents are raising roughly 38,000 grandchildren. In response to the growing ranks of grandparent-led families, which most senior centers cannot accommodate,developers are planning two separate projects of specially designed low-income "grandfamily" housing in Detroit. For Stewart, the proposed grandfamily housing developments is appealing because of its affordability and the prospect of neighbors who couldprovide a support system, baby sitters and playmates for her grandchildren.
