Foster Grandparents: Helping the Children Who Need it Most
Foster Grandparents are senior volunteers who share their knowledge, warmth, and compassion with children. Volunteers work as aides in schools, day care centers, Head Start programs, and family support centers. Our foster grandparents work closely with children who have special needs, from shyness to physical disabilities. They help children develop academic and life skills they need for future success. Foster Grandparents commit 20-40 hours weekly and receive a monthly stipend (which does not affect other entitlements.) To learn more about how to become a Foster Grandparent, call 410-366-1980 x 274.
Our Foster Grandparents program was recentely featured in ABC2’s “Making a Difference” segment.
