About

Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors, and friends to children with exceptional needs. The program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities. Volunteers serve at organizations and schools that help children learn to read and provide one-on-one tutoring, mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers, and help children who have been abused or neglected. Foster Grandparents serve from 15 to 40 hours per week in locations including schools, juvenile correctional facilities, and Head Start centers. Volunteers receive mileage and meal reimbursments, including a small stipend for those who qualify by income. Make a difference in the life of a child!
