Mission Statement

To place limited income seniors in fulfilling positions to mentor, tutor, and give attention and affection to at-risk children.

Description

Make a Difference in the Life of a Child

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 15-40 hours a week, usually 4 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.

by Susan F. from SAGINAW, MI (Administrator for this Organization) (June 3, 2011)
This organization serves seniors as well as children. It is a win-win for all. It gives seniors a usefull feeling and it helps children not only academically but emotionally. The program has a proven track record for both seniors and children.
