Foster Grandparent Program Open Volunteer Enrollment PDF Print E-mail

Foster Grandparents are older Americans 55 and above who give children the most valuable gift of all their time, love and wisdom.  They mentor children from all walks of life, teaching them by their example how to solve problems, do their best in school, how to get along with others and that they are important. The service our Foster Grandparents render overlaps into the community by helping children become productive members of society.  Foster Grandparents serve between 15 and 40 hours per week receiving an hourly stipend.
