Mission Statement

The Foster Grandparent Program of the Concho Valley Council of Governments is to be the focal point through which the experience, talents and energy of adults 60 years of age or older, are utilized as a positive influence for special and exceptional needs children, "at-risk" youths, and as a role model for the community at large.

Description

The Foster Grandparent Program of the Concho Valley was founded in 1997. It is federally funded by the Corporation for National Community Service, and is sponsored locally by the Concho Valley Council of Governments. The program is designed to provide meaningful volunteer assignments for older individuals. Foster Grandparents serve 20 - 40 hours per week providing support and companionship to special and exceptional needs children in educational, daycare, juvenile and community center settings.
