The East Bay Community Action Program's Foster Grandparent Program is currently seeking volunteers to serve in local schools, Head Start sites, libraries, and other nonprofit organizations throughout the East Bay.

The program provides a unique service built on the natural bond between generations. Foster Grandparents receive a modest tax-free hourly STIPEND which will not affect any federal, state, or local benefit or entitlement. Foster Grandparents also receive mileage allowance, meals during service, paid holidays, and accident and liability insurance while on duty. Foster Grandparents must meet certain income eligibility requirements and be at least 55 or older. In addition, they must be caring people who love children and are willing to devote fifteen hours or more per week of service.

Mission Statement

The mission of East Bay Community Action Program (EBCAP) is to provide high-quality, comprehensive and accessible health and human services to assist people to achieve their fullest potential. EBCAP strives to be recognized as the premier health and human services agency in the East Bay. Each year, we help more than 30,000 East Bay individuals, who might not otherwise get their social, emotional, and health care needs met. This strengthens the overall well-being of the communities that we serve.

Description

The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) is part of the Senior Corps, a network of national service programs, including the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and the Senior Companion Program, that provide older Americans the opportunity to put their life experiences to work for local communities. Foster Grandparents work directly with children and youth with special needs through a variety of community organizations, including schools, libraries, group homes, before and after school programs and shelters for children.
