The Foster Grandparent Program offers volunteer opportunities to low-income senior citizens 60 years of age and older. The volunteers are provided a $2.45 per hour stipend as to allow them to provide their services at no cost to themselves.
The Foster Grandparent volunteers provide one-on-one support to those children with special and/or exceptional needs. Teachers assign volunteers to those children identified as needing special attention. The Foster Grandparent have become a great source of support to the community and to the education systems.
