Foster Grandparent Program

senior_reading_to_childThe Foster Grandparent Program provides opportunities for seniors age 55 or older to help children who have fallen behind in reading, writing, and math skills. They help children in schools and in the Head Start program. The one-on-one daily attention the Foster Grandparents provide is the heart of the program. While improving the lives of the children they serve, Foster Grandparents also profoundly enrich their own lives.
