Seniors making a difference in the life of a child!

Description

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD

Foster Grandparents serve from 15 to 40 hours per week in locations including schools, hospitals, juvenile correctional institutions, daycare facilities or Head Start centers.

Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors, and friends to children with exceptional needs. The program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities. All you need to join is the ability to give the kind of comfort and love that sets a child on the path toward a successful future. Volunteers receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where you will serve, supplemental accident and liability insurance, and meals while on duty. Volunteers who meet certain income guidelines also receive a small stipend. And remember: When you volunteer, you’re not just helping others-you’re helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life. If you’re 55 or older and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Foster Grandparent. So get involved, and join Foster Grandparents: Call us today!
