FOSTER GRANDPARENT PROGRAM

Organization: DR. PIPER CENTER FOR SOCIAL SERVICES, INC.

Provides challenging volunteer opportunities for seniors as mentors and tutors for children and youth with special needs. While providing these meaningful experiences for the elderly, the enrollee helps children who have been abused or neglected, mentors troubled teenagers and young mothers, help students increase their reading ability to at least grade level and increases both behavioral and basic learning skills in children with learning and developmental disabilities. The heart of the program is the one-on-one daily attention that Foster Grandparents provide. For volunteers who meet the income eligibility requirement, a tax-free stipend of $2.65 an hour is provided.
