The Foster Grandparent Program places seniors age 55 and older in schools, day cares and head start class rooms to serve as mentors, tutors, and friends to children that have special or exceptional needs. If you are interested in serving as a Foster Grandparent, you will receive benefits such as a tax-free stipend, transportation assistance, paid training, paid time off and annual recognition events. Foster Grandparents serve a minimum of 15 hours a week.
Foster Grandparents offer personal attention to children in their local community that could benefit from a senior's love, wisdom and guidance. Our volunteers help these young people grow, gain confidence, and become full and productive members of society. In the process, Foster Grandparents strengthen communities by providing youth services that community budgets cannot afford and by building bridges across generations.
