Foster Grandparents give their experience and talent to help children develop the skills, confidence and strength to succeed in life. Children who need Foster Grandparents gain individual attention they might not otherwise receive, confidence, tutoring, advice and the life-changing opportunity to know the consistent love of a Foster Grandparent. Foster Grandparents serve in the Day Care, Public School, Head Start or After School program of their choice.
Men and women age 55 and over who live on a limited income and can volunteer an average of 20 hours a week are eligible to participate in the program. Foster Grandparents receive a small hourly stipend, supplemental insurance, help with transportation and meal costs, an annual physical examination and a 40 hour pre-service orientation.
In addition to being 55 or older, applicants must meet the following household income eligibility criteria. Medical expenses may be subtracted from your total income.
Families of five or more may add $8,960 per person
