Mission Statement

By bringing together senior citizens and children who have special or exceptional needs, the Foster Grandparent Program allows retired individuals to engage in meaningful work that benefits all involved. Since 1981 the Foster Grandparent Program has been apart of Catholic Charities mission. The program was established to give retired individuals opportunities to help local youth. With the idea of positive individual attention the foster grandparents help children make gains in their physical, psychological educational and social development. By spending time with older individuals, children can learn a sense of values and coping skills, which help them respond to life's challenges.



The Foster Grandparent Program offers seniors age 55 and older opportunities to serve as mentors, tutors, and loving caregivers for children and youth with special needs. If you are interested in serving as a Foster Grandparent, you must meet income eligibility guidelines, and you will receive a modest, tax-free stipend to offset the cost of volunteering. Foster Grandparents serve 15 to 40 hours a week, usually 4 hours a day Monday through Friday, serving children directly with one-on-one, hands-on service. Other benefits include reimbursement for transportation, some meals during service, an annual physical, and accident and liability insurance while on duty. Pre-Service and monthly training sessions provided.
