Make a Difference in another person's life!
The Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Program offers men and women, 55 years of age and older who meet the qualifications, the opportunity to serve their community by sharing their time and love with children and adults with special needs or learning disabilities. These are caring volunteers who devote 15 to 40 hours per week to helping these children and adults lead a more independent and productive life. In improving the lives of the people who they serve, the Grandparents enrich their own lives. No formal education is required. FGP/SCP volunteers receive a tax exempt stipend (does not affect rent, social security or other benefits, transportation and meal reimbursement, field trips and recognition events. We also provide orientation and monthly in-service training. Our volunteers served over 30,000 hours in 2019.
