A Volunteer Program for Seniors

The Foster Grandparent Program is a volunteer program for seniors to provide stable, caring, and loving relationships with children who have special or exceptional needs. The Foster Grandparent program is a federally-funded program established in 1965.

As a Foster Grandparent, a senior volunteer serves as a role model, a mentor and a friend. Foster grandparents volunteer at Head Start Centers, schools and other nonprofit youth facilities. They help children learn to read, provide one-on-one tutoring and guide children at a critical time in their lives. A Foster Grandparent volunteer gives the kind of comfort and love that sets a child on the path toward a successful future.
