A Program of the Volunteer Center
Foster Grandparents are placed with children in preschool and school-age programs. They assist children who need extra help and attention in developing and improving skills to thrive and succeed in life.
You have the experience, wisdom and know how to make a difference in the lives of the youth of your community by being a volunteer grandparent. Organizations that serve our children public/private schools, head start programs as well as after school programs are in of your services.
The Community Teamwork Foster Grandparent Program will match your talents and interests to the needs of our children. You can help by giving anywhere from 15 to 40 hours a week. Together we can build a stronger generation of children and a better community, for ourselves and our neighbors. Through your gifts of time and talent, you can share something.
Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Programs both get a monthly stipend averaging $200/month.
