Mission Statement

The Foster Grandparent Program will provide low income seniors over the age of 60 with the opportunity to provide meaningful, one- on one service to special needs children. The program benefits the Foster Grandparents through an hourly stipend, transportation reimbursement, training and recognition; the children, through improved physical, mental, emotional and social development; and the sites, through the addition of trained, caring senior citizens, providing one-on-one attention to individual children.

Description

Foster Grandparents offer emotional support to children who have been abused and neglected, mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers, and care for premature infants and children with physical disabilities and severe illness and tutor children who lag behind in reading. Their personal attention helps 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. They often serve in community organizations such as schools, hospitals, Head Start, and youth centers. Please contact us to find out how you can help a child as a Foster Grandparent!
