Mission Statement

The mission of OBU FGP is to impact communities by providing their at-risk children services which will help them move toward self-actualization.

Description

Make a Difference in the Life of a Child

The Foster Grandparent Program offers adults age 60 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. Those not meeting income guidelines may serve as non-stipend volunteers. Foster Grandparents serve 20-40 hours a week, usually 4-8 hours a day Monday through Friday, serving children with one-on-one, direct 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.
