Mission Statement

The mission of the Foster Grandparent Program is to provide meaningful retirement opportunities for low-income persons over sixty by assisting children with special and/or exceptional needs who need one-on-one attention because of physical, mental, emotion and social developmental needs.

Description

Make a Difference in the Life of a Child

The Foster Grandparent Program offers seniors 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. Foster Grandparents serve 20 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.
