Foster Grandparent Program


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.

Volunteers must be income eligible (within 200% of the poverty level) and 55 or older. Volunteers must be able to serve 5 to 40 hours per week 9 months of the year.
