Foster Grandparent Program
Make a difference in a child's life...
As a Foster Grandparent, you can make a difference in the life of a child with special needs by serving as their "Grandma" or "Grandpa" in places such as Head Start Centers, schools or day care facilities.
To be a Foster Grandparent you must:
- be 55 years of age or older
- meet income guidelines
- pass a physical and criminal background check, and
- be available to serve a minimum of 15 hours per week
Foster Grandparents receive a tax-free monetary reimbursement and other benefits for their help.
The Foster Granparent Program is funded by the Corporation of National Community Service and the United Way of Bradford County; and is sponsored by the B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc.
