Mission Statement

Foster Grandparents serve children, age birth to 21, at supervised sites such as preschools, daycares, Head Starts, and elementary schools. Tasks depend on the age of the child, but are generally related to tutoring, mentoring, and self-esteem building. Placements are available at varied locations throughout Franklin & Grand Isle counties. Make a Difference in the Life of a Child . . . Call Today! (802) 524-6337 or email FGP@unitedwaycc.org.
